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.

This is a step up, with noticeably dark, toasty fig, spice and blackberry compote notes that are still wrestling with one another. Yet theres plenty of flesh, with the acidity buried on the finish. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Joanin Becot 1500ml

Another excellent effort from this Cotes de Castillon estate, this 2009 from Juliette Becot is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc that tips the scales at 15.5% alcohol (the highest I tasted). The high alcohol is totally hidden because of th... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Joanin Becot 375ml

(75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc): Dark, bright red. Aromas and flavors of dark cherry, licorice, mocha, minerals and flowers. Plush, ripe and seamless, offering lovely sweetness but maintaining a light touch. Finishes long and fresh, with suave ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The berry, coffee and chocolate character in this wine is impressive. Full, velvety and juicy. Soft textured. Pretty fruit. Delicious already. Best after 2015. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Joanin Becot 750ml

The wine is opaque purple to the rim, with tremendously sweet black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with charcoal, incense, and a hint of toasty oak. Full-bodied with layers of fruit, sweet tannin, remarkable density, and a long, smooth, ve... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Joanin Becot 750ml
