    One of the best Joanin-Bécots I can remember tasting - this is rippling with fruit and is full of the easy pleasure that you want from a Castillon. This is the second vintage with Thomas Duclos as consultant and the first with new technical director Jean de Connick. As an aside, all the tractor drivers and vineyard workers live on the vineyard both here and at Beausejour Bécot, so they worked when needed to ensure protection against mildew and later the heat, which helped hugely in preserving their 50hl/ha yields from clay-limestone soils.-Jane Anson, Decanter

    A beautiful wine that shines on all accounts, the 2018 Château Joanin Bécot is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc from a cooler, limestone terroir in the Castillon region of Bordeaux. Aged in 50% new oak (15% in amphora), it offers a beautiful limestone and mineral-laced style in its blackcurrants, black cherry, dried herbs, camphor, and graphite aromas and flavors. Beautifully balanced, authentic, and lengthy, it will shine on release yet has the class to evolve for over a decade.-Jeb Dunnuck


    A bright style, featuring damson plum and floral notes, flecked with herb accents and lined with a light sandalwood twinge. Very pure and pretty. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    A light and fruity red with pretty, crushed berry and cherry character. Very fine tannins. Medium body. Clean finish. 30 per cent amphora. Fun.-James Suckling

    The 2018 Joanin Becot is blended of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, with the Merlot harvested September 24-27 and the Cabernet Franc picked on October 11. Yields were 46 hectoliters per hectare, and aging is set to occur in 50% new barriques, 25% in vats, 15% in amphorae and 10% in one-year-old barrels. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with opulent, open-knit scents of exotic spices—star anise, fenugreek and cumin seed—over a core of plum preserves, baked cherries and blueberry compote with touches of bouquet garni, tilled soil and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers loads of rich, plushly textured black and blue fruit with an array of spicy sparks and a long finish.-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
