Château Beauséjour Bécot
Château Beauséjour Bécot vineyard is located on the western plateau of Saint-Emilion, in the old parish of Saint-Martin de Mazerat, planted to 73% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Beau-Sejour Becot began life as an estate owned by the monks of St. Martin Abbey in St. Emilion. Château Beau-Séjour Bécot was originally part of a single estate with Château Beausejour-Duffau. In 1869 the vineyards were split up between the owner's two children and they have been owned and run separately ever since.
Chateau Beausejour Becot 2003
"From a 41-acre vineyard situated on St.-Emilion’s limestone plateau, Beau-Sejour-Becot’s blend can vary, but it is approximately 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Production can be as low as 4,000+ cases (in a tiny vintage such as 2003), or as high as 7,000+ cases (in an abundant year such as 2004). The 2003, which reminds me of a 1990 Right Bank Bordeaux, tips the scales at 13.5% alcohol. Its dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote, scorched earth, black cherries, currants, and pain grille. Deep, full-flavored, muscular, textured, and rich with light to moderate tannin in the finish, this lavishly rich, full-bodied effort requires 1-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following 12-15." - Rated 93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
