Nicely toasty, but integrated, with dark spice and black tea leading the way, backed by lush plum sauce, fig and raspberry fruit. The chalky spine is buried on the finish, lending length and boding well for short-term cellaring. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2013 through 2020. 3,665 cases made. JM

An intense wine from the Becot family (Michel Rolland is the consultant), this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc was cropped at a very low 25.5. hectoliters per hectare. The wine has an opaque ruby/purple color and a big, projected nose of red and black fruits, toasty oak, graphite, and a hint of burning embers. A large-scaled wine at 14.5% alcohol, with the requisite glycerin and unctuous texture, this is a thick, juicy, very pure and impressively well-made wine from one of the most fashionable satellites of the Cotes de Bordeaux (Castillon), and thus kudos should go to proprietress Julliette Becot. Drink it over the next decade.
