Although it begins with austerity, its acidity and tannins dominant, the palate opens beyond its youthfulness after a few moments. It becomes dark and powerful, certainly still dryly tannic, but the fruit is generous, and the final taste is of beautiful, ripe fruits.

This forty-acre vineyard, primarily on the limestone plateau of St.-Emilion, has turned out a very successful wine, which one expects from the Becot family, who have always been committed to quality. A blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is deep ruby/purple with a sweet nose of graphite, charcoal, black currant and black cherry fruit. It has an attractive, subtle smokiness, nicely restrained new oak, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and outstanding concentration and length. This is a complete St.-Emilion that should be at is best between 2012 and 2025.
