Beauséjour-Bécot boasts one of the best vineyard sites in Saint Emilion – on a high limestone plateau just west of the old town. This natural advantage and the great age of the vines contribute to this 96-point wine’s complex fruit and lavish depth.

The medieval town of Saint Emilion is the epicentre of what is “currently Bordeaux’s most seismic wine region” (Hugh Johnson, The World Atlas of Wine). And just behind its most famouse estate, Ausone, you find the perfectly situated vineyards of Beauséjour-Bécot. This is exemplary Saint Emilion and one of the elite Premiers Grands Crus. Although it was controversially demoted in 1985 following the purchase of additional vineyards, it was quickly reinstated to its rightful place. Aged for 16 months in 65% new oak barrels and with its many high scores from critics, the 2018 vintage is clearly one of the property’s greatest ever. It displays power, ripeness, richness and elegant balance. To enjoy now decant a couple of hours early, or cellar.
