‘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.’ – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100

‘Bright ruby-red. Ripe but youthfully withdrawn nose hints at black fruits, licorice, espresso, violet and minerals. Supple, suave and dense, with a lightness of touch and excellent calcaire energy to the flavors of black fruits, graphite and licorice. Finishes suave, with substantial fine-grained tannins and palate-coating smoothness. Subtle and very easy to drink.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 91/100

‘Tasted blind at Farr Vintners' 2006 tasting, the 2006 Château Beausejour-Bécot did not fire on all cylinders as I was expecting. The nose is vibrant with dark berry, blackberry and strawberry preserve, well defined and generous with faint smoky notes developing. The palate is medium-bodied, spicy on the entry with moderate weight, fleshy but just attenuating slightly towards the finish. It has an easy-going sensibility that surprised me, though I suspect that with decanting this would gain more substance. Tasted April 2016. 2016-2030’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 90/100
