A great Bordeaux blend from Puisseguin Saint-Emilion where they are allowed to use all the grape varieties from Bordeaux, and they do😊 This time with great success. Dark berry, chocolate, some leather and earthy notes. Full bodied, drinks well now but have many years to the top:). #puisseguinsaintemilion#chateaubeausejour#2010#france#bordeaux
Enjoyed an afternoon wine lunch with a great group of friends. We started with a 2009 Faiveley Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet, which paired beautifully with the oysters. It was fascinating to compare the 1983 and 1986 Château Margaux. In the past, I have clearly preferred the 1983. But the 1986 started out with more verve and complexity. But ultimately, the elegance of the 1983 won me over. I have to say that with the most recent 1986 bottles I have tasted, the tannic grip seems to have relaxed a bit. It’s also great to compare the 1989 Château Clinet and 1990 Château Beauséjour (Duffau-Lagarrosse). The Clinet started with a musty funk that tapered significantly. With a gorgeous nose, rich mouthfeel, and bright acidity, this was in a good spot. The Beauséjour needed some time to shine as well. The wine gained weight in the glass and became more interesting with time. Like the Clinet, it had a soft mouthfeel and plummy nose with truffle and tobacco, but had more sweetness on the finish. Finally, we finished with a 2004 Sine Qua Non Ode to E Syrah. And though there was a sharp contrast with the older Bordeaux on the table, it easily held my interest. It was packed with concentrated dark fruits, black pepper, bacon fat, and barbecue smoke. Well-balanced for such a big wine. Overall, all of these wines were ready for business and require at least 2 hours for optimal drinking. Cheers! 🍷

The vine here is more than a tradition: it is a historical constant. In Gallo-Roman times, the site was already dedicated to the vines. In the Middle Ages, the monks of Saint-Martin de Mazerat also produced wine. In 1969, the estate was acquired by Michel Bécot, from a family of winemakers established in Saint-Emilion since the mid-18th century.
After some acquisitions, the Château Beau-Séjour Bécot vineyard now covers 16 hectares and 60 acres on a unified and homogeneous terroir, in the heart of the Saint-Emilion vineyard, which earned it a first Grand Cru B ranking in 1996. .
The two sons of Michel Bécot, Gérard in the cellar and Dominique in the vineyard, took over from the father, helped by Gerard's daughter, Juliette Bécot, who now manages the Joanin-Bécot estate since 2001.
