  • 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.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
