Château Joanin Bécot was purchased by the Bécot family in February 2001. According to Juliette, they chose this Bordeaux wine property because of the unique terroir. Joanin Bécot is located at some of the highest elevations along the Gironde in the Côtes de Castillon.
Shortly after purchasing the estate, the family added their name to the property as well. In 2001 at the time of the purchase, Joanin Bécot was 5.4 hectares. With additional purchases, they increased the size of their vineyards to 12 hectares.

The 12 hectare vineyard is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc on a terroir of clay and limestone soils.

Tasting Notes

2011 – 88 Points, Robert Parker “The Wine Advocate” (April 2014)
“Proprietress Juliette Bécot has produced a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc that again merits high marks for a value-priced offering in 2011.  A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by abundant quantities of dark berry fruit intermixed with hints of white chocolate, lead pencil shavings and vanillin.  Medium-bodied with good juiciness, succulence, ripe tannin and a fleshy, opulent mouthfeel and finish, it is another big time sleeper of the vintage to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.”
