The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
Beausejour Becot is one of the most prestigious properties of St Emilion. It's vines are planted on the limestone plateau of Saint Emilion with a terroir of clay that has deep, limestone soils.
The 1995 is dominated by ripe and rich Merlot aromas and flavours combined with red fruits, herbs and a floral nuance. Classic St Emilion and as a double magnum, it's four times as good!
