    A spectacular wine from this nearly 50-acre vineyard situated atop St.-Emilion's famed limestone plateau, the final blend for the 2012 Beau-Sejour Becot was 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. It achieved 14% natural alcohol and yields were 31 hectoliters per hectare. One of the stars of the vintage, it is elegant yet powerful, rich and authoritative with abundant black raspberry, blueberry, graphite and toasty vanillin notes. Full-bodied and super rich for a 2012, it is packed with potential. The tannins are ripe as well as abundant suggesting several years of bottle age will be required. It should turn out to be a 20 year proposition.

    Bright ruby. Blackcurrant, graphite, licorice and pepper on the nose. Blackberry, spices and vanilla on the palate, with a violet topnote contributing to an impression of lift. Nicely sweet and savory Saint-Emilion, with building concentration, very good length and plenty of early appeal.
