Chateau Beau-Sejour-Becot 2004
Palate: full, but lacking harmony just now.
Very grapey and fresh on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a complex, subtle aftertaste of vanilla, blueberry and cream. Long and refined. Best after 2012.
Dense crimson hue. Redolent of vanilla and allspice with hints of cherry. Juicy flavors of raspberry and wild cherry. Hints of sweet tobacco in the raspberry-driven close.
A strong effort from the Becot family, this blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a saturated dense ruby/purple color, sweet notes of creme de cassis, cherries, earth, and subtle herbs, a spicy, medium to full-bodied, soft, opulent style, and a fleshy, long finish. Enjoy this hedonistic yet complex wine over the next 12-15 years. Just under 6,000 cases were produced.
Good red-ruby. Expressive nose offers cherry liqueur, currant, coffee, mocha and menthol, plus a meaty nuance. Supple and sweet, with lovely stuffing and depth of flavor. Not a big boy, but ripe acids give it good balance. Spreads out nicely to coat the palate on the finish. This has turned out very well.
