95pts Jeb Dunnuck

Showing beautifully, the 2000 Château Beau-Sejour Bécot is fully in its prime drink window and offers brilliant aromatics of red and black fruits, cedar pencil, tobacco leaf, truffle, and licorice. Full-bodied on the palate, it has a deep, concentrated mid-palate, resolved tannins, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish.

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Is this the greatest Beau-Sejour-Becot ever produced? The 2000 has put on weight over the last year, and appears to be a spectacular effort in this vintage. The wood is better integrated, and the fruit, glycerin, and overall dimensions are noteworthy. The color is an opaque purple. The bouquet smells of ink, jammy blackberries and currants, wet stones, and licorice. Super-pure and fabulously extracted, with high tannin, full body, and awesome richness and length, this blockbuster effort will be at its finest between 2008-2025.

Winemaker Notes

This, almost extremely ostentatious wine will have its detractors, but as far as pleasure is concerned, there is no criticism to be made. Strong ruby-purple color, it is clearly well endowed, sugary and generously woody, literally oozing with extracted richness. Averagely robust, it displays in its strong and massive finale some moderately aggressive tannins. Rich and concentrated overall.

Winery Notes

Chateau Beau-Séjour Bécot is located just to the west of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion, in the very heart of this prestigious appellation. Classified a Premier Grand Cru Classé until 1986, the chateau lost its rank as a "Premier", but regained it in 1996 thanks to a ruling by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d'Origine).
The estate was named Beau-Séjour in 1787 by General Jacques de Carle, the proprietor at the time. Michel Bécot bought the estate from Doctor Jean Fagouet in 1969 and further increased the area under vine from 10.5 hectares to 15 by acquiring 4.5 hectares on the Trois Moulins plateau in 1979. The chateau then took on the name of Beau-Séjour Bécot. The vines are planted on perfectly homogenous soil ideal for producing fine wine. Michel Bécot retired in 1985. His two sons, Gérard and Dominique, now manage the estate.
