Château Beau-Séjour Bécot, 1GCC
Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Stephen Brook 17.75 James Lawther MW 17 Steven Spurrier 17.5
Spicy, dark fruit nose. Very expressive and some nice florality. The tannins are a little green now, but the depth of fruit will come through. It’s balanced and stylish, but not very expressive now, though the finish shows ripeness and length.
