"91+ out of 100…Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Beauséjour Bécot had a strange bouquet at first, a little funkiness that soon dissipates with several swirls of the glass. I like the delineation here, nuanced red cherry and wild strawberry scents, black tea and undergrowth, though I noticed that it becomes just a little volatile with aeration—something to watch out for. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, foursquare for a Saint Emilion and yet nicely focused, just the right amount of dryness, if not quite delivering the requisite complexity and tension on the finish. This is one of those wines that is"nearly there" and needs bottle age, but I am certain it will come good once it has settled down. Tasted January 2016." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
"(91-92) out of 100...Lovely silky texture with very pretty fruit and character. Medium to full body. Well-integrated and a fresh finish. - James Suckling
"(89-92) out of 100...This is bouncy, with a briary backdrop to the blueberry, lingonberry and cherry fruit. Delivers a mouthfilling finish of fruit cake and anise. - Wine Spectator
