1990 Beau-Sejour Becot, St. Emilion (Previously $230)

SKU #1371609 91 points Wine Spectator

 Impressive wine. Dark ruby color. Lovely aromas of raspberries, chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied and very chewy. Still holding back yet there's fruit under it all.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. (JS)  (8/2000)

90 points Vinous

 Red cherries, strawberry, rose petals and a touch of sous-bois, conveying more tension than the preceding vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy opening: quite meaty in style, nicely judged acidity and fine cohesion; not complex but well balanced with an appealing savory finish that is imparted by the Cabernet Franc. This just has the edge of the 1989 and it should give another decade of pleasure. Tasted at the château. (NM)  (4/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Fully mature, the 1990 has a dark ruby/plum/garnet color, a spicy, oaky, vanillin, herbaceous, and black cherry-scented nose, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a surprisingly long, structured finish, with impressive glycerin as well as fruit. (RP)  (12/2002)

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.
