Other Reviews....
The 2019 Joanin Bécot is terrific. Classy and polished, the 2019 shows off terrific purity of fruit and expressive aromatics to match its mid-weight personality. As always, the Franc lends notable distinction. Drink 2024-2034.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

A perfumed nose of cherries, currants, plums, violets, clay and baking spices. Medium-bodied with fine tannins. Fruity and balanced with a fresh, supple finish. 75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc. Drink from 2023.

Mulberries, ripe cherries, tobacco leaf, and chalky mineral notes all emerge from the 2019 Château Joanin Bécot, another pure, incredibly elegant, balanced beauty from this family. Readers who love vibrant, elegant, yet still concentrated and impeccably made Bordeaux will love this medium-bodied, seamless 2019 that can be drunk any time over the coming 10-15. Drink 2022 - 2037.

Evident freshness from the first moment, plenty of body to the savoury red fruits. Everything is in balance and you get both juice, deepening gourmet touches of chocolate shavings and salinity as it builds to the finish. Great stuff, and low SO2 additions. Drink 2023 - 2036.

Jane Anson - Decanter

The nose opens with flowers, espresso, cocoa, licorice and plums. The wine is soft, silky, fresh and polished on the palate allowing all of its sweet, ripe, black raspberries, plums, cherries coffee and licorice to shine through. The wine was made from a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2023-2034.
