This is clearly an up and coming St.-Emilion estate that could join the top estates of the appellation. The vineyards are superbly situated, and the Becots appear to be willing to invest whatever it takes to build Beau-Sejour into one of the most renowned names of St.-Emilion. Dark ruby, with the Becots' lavishly-oaked, toasty nose, this medium-bodied wine reveals more structure than the 1993, but less charm and precociousness. Although qualitatively the equal of the 1993, as well as potentially longer-lived, I am not sure the 1994 will match the 1993 for pure, enjoyable drinking. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2012.
