2003 Joanin Becot, Cotes de Castillion

SKU #1022803 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A rich, concentrated, still vibrant and vigorous wine, this beauty from Julliette Becot reveals lots of black currant and black cherry fruit, a fat, fleshy mouthfeel, a supple texture, and a pure, rich finish with everything in balance. It should continue to drink well for another 4-5 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full, deep red. High-toned, pure aromas of cherry, currant and flowers. Sweet, fat and superripe, with deep flavors of red fruits, chocolate liqueur and sweet oak. This began a bit plump and exotically sweet but with time in the glass showed much more shape and freshness without any loss of fat or richness. Finishes with big, ripe, slightly dusty tannins. This was clearly the breakthrough vintage for Juliette Becot's Cotes de Castillon property, which is situated on a clay and limestone plateau. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Loads of clean fruit here with hints of licorice and minerals. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins and a long finish. Very well-crafted. From the daughter of the owner of Château Beau-Séjour Bécot in St.-Emilion. Best after 2009. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2006)
