"The 2016 Joanin Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 42 hectoliters per hectare between 12-19 October and matured in 65% new oak. It has a very well-defined bouquet with plenty of black cherry fruit, blueberry and a touch of boot polish. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, great volume, a fine bead of acidity and although there is a touch of reduction on the finish, it will be a fine, generous and quite powerful Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux with time. " Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
