  1. 96-99 Wine Spectator Notes

  2. 95-97 Wine Advocate Notes

    The 2018 Beau-Sejour Becot is composed of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot was harvested on September 12-25, and the Cabernet varieties were harvested on October 4, 5 and 10. Yields were 46 hectoliters per hectare, and it is anticipated that the wine will age for 16 months. Sixty-five percent of the wine will be matured in new barriques, while 35% will be aged in vats, amphorae and large oak casks of 20-hectoliter capacity. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bold, expressive notions of stewed plums, blackberry pie and Black Forest cake with nuances of menthol, mocha, molten licorice and wild sage plus a waft of lavender. Full-bodied, the palate is laden with latent energy, offering slow-releasing glimpses at dark, seductive berry preserves layers and vibrant earthy accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. Spring was very complicated, Juliette Bcot informed me. Cold, rainy and wet. Its like we didnt see the end of winter. Fortunately, our vineyard workersthree at Beau-Sejour and one at Joaninlive on the estates. And they were all willing to work on Sundays. Their dedication saved us from the mildew in 2018. Beau-Sejour Becot has just over 17 hectares (42 acres) in production on the highly desirable clay/limestone plateau just to the west of Saint-milion. Joanin is composed of just over 12 hectares (30 acres) on the clay/limestone plateau just 300 meters west of the village of Saint-Philippe-d'Aiguille in Castillon Ctes de Bordeaux. Both properties now work with Thomas Duclos as a consultant. The final blends were made at the end of January. LP_04/2019

  3. 94-96 Vinous Notes

    The 2018 Beau-Sjour Bcot is fabulous. Dense, rich and explosive, the 2018 has it all. Soaring aromatics and a huge spine of tannin give the 2018 its regal contours. The 2018 was barreled down late, and it is still coming together, especially in its aromatics, but its potential is evident. A wine of tremendous character and personality Beau-Sjour Bcot dazzles in 2018. It is an utterly captivating Saint-milion from Juliette Bcot and Julien Barthe, along with their consulting winemaker Thomas Duclos. AG-04/2019
