1995 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion

SKU #110444 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 1995 Beau-Sejour Becot was an unexpected showstopper. It has a very succinct bouquet, a little backward at first but after a few swirls, it unfolds with precise aromas of redcurrant, cranberry leaf, humidor and dried rose petals all with impressive vigor. The palate is well balanced, classic in style with crisp acidity and wonderful focus. There remains plenty of energy here and it comes armed with gorgeous notes of allspice, clove and sage infusing the red and black fruit on the persistent finish. This is an outstanding Saint Emilion from Beausejour-Bécot. Tasted December 2016. (NM)  (2/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
