Chateau Joanin Becot Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2018
You cannot find a harder working woman in Cotes de Castillon. Juliette Becot is responsible for managing three properties, including her Father's St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe property, Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot and La Gomerie. "Made with Love" is the theme of Juliette Becot's wine. Passion passes on from Father to Daughter, as Juilette works side by side with ther Father to creat Chateau Joanin Becot.
The bottle is finished with a beautifully colored capsule and a simple elegant label.

"Emerging from the team of Beau-Séjour Bécot, the 2018 Château Joanin Bécot is based on 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc coming from the limestone soils of the Côtes de Castillon region. Lots of black cherry and redcurrant fruit as well as leafy herbs, dried flowers, chalky minerality, and camphor emerge on the nose. This carries to a medium-bodied, seamless 2018 with terrific overall balance, ripe yet present tannins, and outstanding length on the finish. Tasting like a topflight Saint-Emilion, it will benefit from a year or so in the cellar and impress for at least a decade. Readers looking for a brilliant Right Bank wine to put in the cellar should jump on this beauty." Jeb Dunnuck
