Chateau Joanin Becot 2015
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2015 Joanin Becot is blended 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged on the lees in 60% new and 40% one-year old barrels for 16 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with crushed red cherries and black raspberries on the nose with nuances of underbrush and bay leaves. The mouth is full, rich and a little rustic with firm, chewy tannins and a long, earthy finish.
