The Joanin Bécot 2014, often one of the top performing Côte de Castillon crus, is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc cropped at 30 hectoliter per hectare. Being raised in 60% new wood, it has a very ripe and opulent bouquet, perhaps just a little high-toned in the context of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy black fruit, nicely integrated oak with a structured, masculine, tertiary finish that is persistence in the mouth. This is a modern style Bordeaux but one that is cleverly and thoughtfully executed.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator
Sleek, with damson plum and cassis notes that glide through, inlaid with a floral edge and backed by light savory and iron hints on the focused finish. Shows lovely purity and freshness. Drink now through 2022. 4,000 cases made.

The 2014 Joanin Bécot is dark, fleshy and seductive. Sweet red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all infuse this succulent, pliant Côtes de Castillon. The 2014 has become quite refined over the last 18 months, and today, it is super-expressive. The blend is 75 % Merlot and 25 % Cabernet Franc, aged in 60 % new French oak. Jean-Philippe Fort is the consulting winemaker. Tasted two times.

A dense and rich wine with licorice, asphalt and currants. Full, firm and structured. Chewy.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Ripe, soft, round and packed with licorice, ripe, black cherries and cocoa, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc is going to show well early. 88-90 Pts

Neal Martin - Vinous
The 2014 Joanin Bécot has a well defined bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and cold stone, almost Left Bank in style. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, a little simple and primal with an assertive, rather “blunt” finish that needs to rediscover the complexity previous bottles have shown. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Jeannie Cho Lee MW - Asian Palate
Soft, supple red with good intensity - fresh herbs, plum, blackberry. A polished, well-made wine that should drink well within the first 3 to 7 years of its life.
