The medieval town of Saint-Émilion 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 famous estate, Ausone, is the perfectly situated vineyards of Beau-Séjour-Bécot. This is exemplary Saint-Émilion and one of the elite Premiers Grands Crus Classés. Although it was controversially demoted in 1985 following the purchase of additional vineyards, it was quickly reinstated to its rightful place. Aged for 18 months in 55% new oak barrels, plus a quarter in amphorae, critics concur that the 2022 "is the best wine ever produced at Beau-Séjour Bécot" (Jeff Lève) . It displays power, ripeness, richness and elegant balance. A fine wine for the cellar.

"One of the very finest editions of Beau-Séjour Bécot I can remember tasting. A great, great wine" Antoni Galloni
