Winemaker's Notes

4 Stars Decanter"... a very successful wine, which one expects from the Becot family, who have always been committed to quality. ...It has an attractive, subtle smokiness, nicely restrained new oak, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and outstanding concentration and length. This is a complete St.-Emilion that should be at is best between 2012 and 2025…91." WA 2/09

    70% Merlot; 24% Cabernet Franc; 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. This tobacco-scented bottling comes with complexing notes of loam and forest-floor spice, but it is somewhat less generous in the fruity succulence one wants in wines governed by Merlot, and, even though St. Emilion need not mirror Napa, big-time success requires a little more fruit than shown here.
