2017 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1362094 93-96 points Wine Spectator

 Shows a lovely, engaging feel, offering succulent blackberry and cherry compote notes. Delightfully pure, with light echoes of bramble, chalk and anise flittering through the finish. Silky and refined, this has length to burn. (JM)  (4/2018)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 This wine revels in its soft black fruit flavors. Supported by structured tannins that are already well integrated, it shows touches of wood and spice at the end. This is going to be a generous, fruity wine from 2023. (RV)  (4/2018)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The tentative blend of the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with an earthy nose of mossy bark, truffles and fertile loam with a core of baked plums, crushed blackberries and black raspberries. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and delicately played with energetic fruit and plush tannins, finishing earthy. (LPB)  (4/2018)

93 points Decanter

 Lovely dark chocolate and fresh mint aromas are followed by a textured, silky and soft palate. It has a slightly gourmet feel, but is very well handled, not overdone. An enjoyable wine, fresh but intense and with great balance. (JA)  (4/2018)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Deeply colored, the 2017 Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot checks in as 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that was 50% destemmed and aged in 65% French oak. This classic, elegant 2017 reveals a deep ruby/purple hue as well as plenty of black cherry and mulberry fruits, solid complexity in its salty minerality, dried flowers, iron, and spice aromatics, medium to full body, a bright spine of acidity, and outstanding length. It doesn't have the flesh or richness of the 2016 (or 2018) yet is classic, pure, incredibly precise, and long. This beautiful wine will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years.  (2/2020)

93 points James Suckling

 Some handy depth to the nose here with quality fruit that’s evenly ripened. Rich aromas of mulberries lead to similar flavors on the very smooth, juicy and supple palate with plenty of fine tannins. Drink or hold.  (2/2020)

92 points Vinous

 The 2017 Beau-Séjour-Bécot has an elegant bouquet, much more tertiary than the 2016 with sous-bois-infused black fruit mixed with tobacco and light truffle aromas. Fine definition here fore sure, much more than in the past. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins matched with a fine bead of acidity. There is a lovely creamy texture to this Saint-Émilion. Plenty of detailed red fruit towards the finish demonstrates fine substance, if not the persistency of the best recent vintages from this ascendant estate. Still, this is an excellent wine.
