- 1998 Château Beau-Séjour Bécot – France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (6/6/2009)
Tasted over the course of three nights. Started out well on night 1, turned ugly on night 2, and ended up drinking great on night 3. On night one, came out of the bottle pretty primary. Lots of blackberry coffee and earth with a hint of oak. On night two, wine got very jammy and fruit had plushed up (not in a good way). Oak had come to the forefront. On night three, oak had receded, and acid came out instead. Combined with the earth and blackberry flavors, it made for a solid bottle of wine. Seem like it will need more time to come together.
