Château Joanin Bécot Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the stars of the vintage for this appellation, this property, owned by Juliette Becot, produces a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, and looked after by Michel Rolland’s right-hand man in Bordeaux, Jean-Philippe Forte, this stunning 2006 exhibits sweet blackberry, black currant, smoky, toasty oak, espresso roast, and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with precise minerality, and good focus, purity, texture, and depth, this superb sleeper of the vintage should be consumed over the next decade. Good value...90" WA 2/09

Undecanted bottle from preservation machine. Nose of cool, uplifting air or wet stone. In the mouth has strong, slightly sour ripe fruit (dark berry, black cherry, and cassis) with vegetal ntoes, some mineral, and perhaps a bit of herb with slightly watery body and metallic tannins and a bit of bitterness. Medium-length finish of fruit and some oak. Medium body, medium plus tannin and acid. Dry. 75% merlot, 25% cab franc. Interesting wine I want to try decanted properly.
