Chateau Joanin Becot Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Castillon|
|Brand||Chateau Joanin Becot|
On the toasty side, with flashes of vanilla and mocha, but there's ample fleshy plum sauce and currant preserve flavors at the core, along with lingering notes of anise and violet on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2025. 4,750 cases made.
A mineral texture gives this ripe wine an edge while its full, red berry fruit offers some solid tannins and concentration. It's smoky and full-bodied and will be ready to drink from 2019.
