This exceptional wine is presently as impressive as the 2010, but obviously it is much more drinkable. Made from yields of 32 hectoliters per hectare with 14% natural alcohol, this blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon reveals some spicy new oak along with lots of vanillin, underbrush, black currants and black cherry jam. Dense ruby/purple-colored and full-bodied with moderate tannin, it is more supple and forward than the 2010. Nevertheless, this big 2008 needs 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep for 15-20 years.

The 2008 Beau-Séjour Bécot was picked between 7 and 22 October. This has a very lively bouquet with blackberry, wild strawberry and hints of Seville orange marmalade, the oak neatly integrated and with just the right amount of spiciness to keep you entertained. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin with a fine line of acidity, just a little lactic in texture, veins of dark chocolate coming through with aeration. There is impressive depth here, not to mention a sense of sensuality towards the persistent finish. Bon vin. Tasted at the château.
