RP: The bottled 2005 Beau Sejour Becot confirms that this is the finest effort from this estate in the thirty years I have been covering Bordeaux. A classic blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is an intense, full-bodied St.-Emilion revealing notes of espresso roast, chocolate, blackberries, licorice, and truffles. With sweet but noticeable tannins, good acidity, and a powerful, long finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Perhaps the finest wine this estate has made since I began my career nearly 30<br/>years ago, the 2005 is a blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6%<br/>Cabernet Sauvignon made from yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. This is one<br/>of the few grand cru St.-Emilions that is available in reasonable quantities<br/>(6,000 cases). Intense and rich with a tannic structure that suggests 5-7 years<br/>of cellaring will be necessary, it should keep for 25-30 years." <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr-2007)
