Bright red-ruby. Complex, inviting nose combines black raspberry, licorice, mocha and mineral notes of flint and graphite. Suave, seamless and perfumed, with lovely integrated acidity giving shape to the sweet, fleshy, concentrated flavors of currant and graphite. Very ripe, rich and chewy but not overextracted. Finishes silky and long, with sound acids and very smooth tannins. An excellent vintage for this chateau.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Beau-Sejour Becot reveals a lifted, slightly acetone-scented nose over a core of baked blackberries and prunes plus wafts of dried bay leaves, pencil lead and tilled soil. Full-bodied, the palate is pleasantly tart with firm, sturdy tannins supporting the generous herb-laced black fruit preserves, finishing a tad chewy.
