2009 Château Beau-Séjour Bécot, 1er Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion
Dense black cherry notes, hints of olive and chocolate of ripe Merlot. The palate shows good fruit intensity, allied to great freshness and a pleasing mineral drive – due in large part to the healthy 24% dose of Cabernet Franc. The tannins are ripe and well integrated and the wine has a gentle, flowing texture. A well-handled and well-balanced St Emilion.
