  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Bright full ruby. Sweet, expressive aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate, cola and exotic spices. Lush, velvety and sweet, with expansive flavors of dark fruits, mocha and cola complemented by sexy oak. The expansive finish features building ripe tannins and excellent lingering sweetness. Very much in the fleshy style of the year and attractive from day one.

    Dark but racy, with chocolate-covered raspberry and blackberry fruit carried by graphite and toasty cinnamon, black tea and anise flavors. Firms up on the finish, with a lovely note of singed apple wood that should meld nicely after cellaring.

    My favorite Beau-Sejour-Becot to date, this sumptuous, dense blue/purple-hued 2009 reveals a blockbuster nose of blueberry pie, black fruits, licorice, forest floor, spring flowers and a hint of mocha. A blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon made from tiny yields of 27 hectoliters per hectare, this big, inky, powerful, tannic wine is sensationally concentrated. With an unctuous texture, full-bodied power and tremendous levels of tannin (largely concealed behind a cascade of rich fruit), this is a fabulous effort from a beautifully situated St.-Emilion premier grand cru classe. It will need 5-8 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades.

    Ripe and perfumed - damsons and violets. Rich and soft and good depth. Very approachable, moderate length. (JH)
