Château Beau-Séjour Bécot | Julien Barthe
Beau-Séjour Bécot is located to the west of the magical town of Saint-Émilion on the Saint-Martin de Mazerat limestone plateau. It was listed as a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 1955 classification thanks to its unique terroir.
In 1969, Michel Bécot bought the iconic château and established its fine reputation around the world. He also turned seven hectares of former underground limestone quarries into a cellar to store ageing bottles under ideal conditions. Over one hundred Beau-Séjour Bécot vintages are stored there, away from light and variations in temperature.
His two sons, Gérard and Dominique, have introduced numerous technical innovations to both the cellar and vineyard to make the most of this outstanding terroir.
A representative of the new generation, Julien Barthe travels widely to promote the family’s enthusiasm and never-ending quest to produce an elegant, charming wine.
