2017 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion

SKU #1482714 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Beau-Sejour Becot sails out of the glass with pronounced black cherries, kirsch, baked plums and boysenberries scents plus nuances of bay leaves, star anise and pencil shavings with a waft of roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of juicy black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with great length and purity. (LPB) 96+ Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93-96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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. 93+ Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

K&L Notes

92 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2017 Beau-Séjour-Bécot is attractive, but it is also very much a wine of the old guard here. There is good depth and resonance, but not the detail or expansiveness that is the norm these days. Pretty floral and spice overtones add lovely aromatic presence to this pliant, open-knit Saint-Émilion." (03/2020)
