The 2014 Beau-Séjour Bécot has a concentrated nose of blackberry, raspberry and briary, the oak nicely integrated though it clearly needs time to open. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, caressing and silky smooth in the mouth with quality new oak. This feels very harmonious with a lightly spiced, cedar-tinged finish that lingers in the mouth. What an outstanding performance. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. 2022 – 2044

Solid and tight with tangy acidity and tannins. Full bodied and chewy.
