‘Aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants. Hints of fresh and wet earth. Full-bodied, very tight and polished with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Shows intensity and brightness. Exciting. Top for the appellation. Needs five to six years to come together, but already gorgeous.’ – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100

‘The 2016 Joanin Becot is blended of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged on the lees in 65% new and 35% one-year-old oak for 15 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features warm plums, blackberry pie and wild blueberries aromas with touches of underbrush and menthol plus a waft of roses. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and plush with a good fruit core and perfumed finish. 2019-2033’ – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘The 2016 Château Joanin Bécot (Merlot and Cabernet Franc aged in 65% new oak) is a rounded, nicely textured wine that stays in the classic style of the vintage. Black cherries, white flowers, spice, and hints of limestone-like minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant 2016 that has loads to love. As usual, it’s impeccably made and represents a good value. Drink it over the coming decade or so.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 90/100

‘Solidly built, featuring a core of gently warmed cassis and blackberry paste flavors, with fresh tobacco leaf and light incense notes. A subtle juniper echo runs through the finish. Drink now through 2026.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 90/100
