Chateau Joanin Becot

Castillon - Côtes de Bordeaux - 2012, 14%

grape icon 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc
Bordeaux Intensity: 6

91 points - Antonio Galloni Vinous The 2012 Joanin Bécot is dark, open and quite seductive. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather all meld together in a very pretty, gracious wine with soft contours to drink now and over the next handful of years. This is a gorgeous wine that delivers superb quality as well as value. 90 points - James Suckling Fresh and silky red with blueberry, mineral and floral character. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Extremely well done. 90 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate This property continues to make terrific value wines. Gorgeous, plump black cherry, kirsch and blackcurrant fruit mixed with incense, licorice and spice jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple wine. Fleshy, opulent and a dead ringer for a top Pomerol, this beauty from the Becot family is once again a major over-achiever.
