Bordeaux Futures 2021 estimated to arrive Summer 2024
Appellation: Castillon Côtes de Bordeeaux
90-91 James Suckling
"A juicy red with plum, coffee and light tobacco character. Medium-bodied with medium, round tannins and a savory finish."
"Bramble fruit aromas and lovely subtle perfume to the red summer berries. Smooth and supple palate but the wine has such a vibrancy to it. It has a bit of a wild energy with salty earth, sour cherry, ripe strawberry and a touch of crushed stone and tobacco. You get the minerality and a real display of nuance and detail on the palate. This has character: it’s smooth but with satin-textured tannins giving the support and structure in the mouth with a slow build of flavour to a lifted, fresh finish. An excellent and impressive effort from Côtes de Castillon in 2021. No chapitalisation. 7% press wine. 3.5pH."
89-91 Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2021 Château Joanin Bécot is terrific, with an incredible sense of minerality as well as pure red and black fruits, medium-bodied richness, good acidity, and polished yet present tannins. It plays in the fresher, elegant style of the vintage yet has good concentration and length. I'd happily buy (and drink) a bottle."
90-92 Wine Advocate
"This 14-hectare vineyard in the Côtes de Castillon has delivered a fine performance with the 2021 Joanin Bécot. Offering up aromas of cherries, dark berries and subtle hints of pipe tobacco, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and precise, with a generous core of fruit framed by fine tannins and a bright spine of acidity. It's a characterful, beautifully made wine that punches above its weight."
89-91 Neal Martin for Vinous
"The 2021 Joanin Bécot has a very appealing, pure black cherry and cassis bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate still has a bit of gas, but I appreciate the balance and freshness, and the structure on the finish. This is promising."
