Château Joanin Bécot Castillon - Côtes de Bordeaux 2019


Excellent effort from the owners of Château Beau-Séjour Bécot in Saint-Émilion. We tasted this wine at Vinonueva with Julien Barthe (Co-owner) in 2023 and were impressed by the finesse, freshness and aromatics of this 2019. A true pleasure to drink and a wine that offers incredible value. Great everyday drinking option in the right bank. Love it!!!

"Juliette Bécot (also of Château Beau-Séjour Bécot in Saint-Émilion) has done great work in this vintage! The 2019 Joanin Bécot reveals an abundance of cassis, blueberry, flower and violet aromas overlaid with a nuance of graphite. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is perfectly balanced and framed by fine, controlled tannins and power. This wine made a significant impression on me." - 93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Joanin Bécot is terrific. Classy and polished, the 2019 shows off terrific purity of fruit and expressive aromatics to match its mid-weight personality. As always, the Franc lends notable distinction." - 90 points, Antonio Galloni Vinous

"Mulberries, ripe cherries, tobacco leaf, and chalky mineral notes all emerge from the 2019 Château Joanin Bécot, another pure, incredibly elegant, balanced beauty from this family. Readers who love vibrant, elegant, yet still concentrated and impeccably made Bordeaux will love this medium-bodied, seamless 2019 that can be drunk any time over the coming 10-15." - 92 points, Jeb Dunnuck

"Evident freshness from the first moment, plenty of body to the savoury red fruits. Everything is in balance and you get both juice, deepening gourmet touches of chocolate shavings and salinity as it builds to the finish. Great stuff, and low SO2 additions. Drinking Window 2023 - 2036." - 92 points, Decanter
