The Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot enjoys the unique beauty and privileges of its region as it is located on a clay and limestone plateau, centered in the prestigious Saint-Emilion.The Becot family owner of this outstanding vineyard, has been living in Saint Emilion since the French Revolution.
In 1969, Michel Becot bought the Chateau Beau-Sejour, and nowadays, the property stretches over 22 HA.Since then, Michel Becot’s sons, Gerard and Dominique have developed many technical innovations in their wine storehouse, and the vineyard in order to select the highest quality grapes, harvest them and then, hand picked them grape by grape.Under the vineyard and its 7HA. of limestone grounds lay safely in the best possible condition, over hundred thousand of well selected bottles of wine.
Today, the sixth generation of the Becot family is energized by the very same passion , close to its deep rooted family traditions, and is working diligently to maintain its ranking amongst the very best world grand crus. An unapologetic quest toward excellence, a maintain and respect of the region and its soil, a thirst for innovation guide their steps seasons after seasons, vintage after vintage.

Fascinating insight into the complex world of winemaking, expertly explained by the guide. Tasing after was good fun and informative; highly recommended
FABULEUX quel moment !
A great tour of information and tasting m, the guide was informative and had very good English. It would have been nice to see the barrel room, vats and cellar but maybe next time once the renovation have been completed. Will definitely buy wine from this chateau in the future. Thanks!
Our guide during our visit was very informative in showing us the grounds and explaining the history of the property. The tasting was delicious as we were able to try 4 wines from their various vineyards and each had a sweet pairing of chocolate or a macaron. The price points were reasonable and they ship to the US! They were able to process our order and supply us with tracking information within 24 hours of our purchase. Overall a great find.
This was a very informative tour of the vineyard and it was a great tasting.
We had a great experience visiting the domain and wine-tasting. The wine is so elegant and bring so many different hints and notes from rose petals to red berries and licorice… Thank you, we will be back!
Thank you for a great visit and tasting.
Es war eine ganz tolle Verkostung mit unterschiedlichen Arten von Weinen für verschiedene Ereignisse. Es hat mich sehr gefreut, dass man auch gereifte Weine probieren konnte. Der Château La Gomerie 2001 war ein Erlebnis für sich.
A friend recommended your winery and I am so grateful that she did! Not only was the wine amazing, the tour was super informative and interesting.
Délicieux avec les accords chocolat
Sehr empfehlenswert - tolle Erklärungen, sympathischer Sommelier und großartige Weine zur Verkostung mit passender Schokolade!!
We enjoyed the wine tour and tasting. We were with our children and they were well welcomed during the experience. The explanations of the development of the terroir along with the management of the vines helped us understand how they develop their wines. Overall it was a great experience.
Excellent visit with a professional, knowledgeable and friendly host.
The pairing with chocolate was great.
The signs for parking were confusing. One was for deliveries (livraisons) and the other led far past the reception. Also, the entrance to the reception was not well marked.
Fabuleux domaine tout en simplicité À faire ! Merci encore pour l’accueil Au plaisir de revenir faire une petite visite
UNE Visite, sans plus, très courte. Nous avons été déçue par la visite sommaire si on la compare a des châteaux équivalents. Le rapport qualité prix est bcp trop cher pour la prestation.
Loic was an amazing host and he was incredibly knowledgeable and patient with us. Your wine tasting and visit is one of the best we have been to in St Emilion.
We had a lovely time at Beau-Séjour Bécot! The property is beautiful and it was a pleasure to get to know its history. Loic, who did our tour is very knowleageable and witty, which made our experience very fun. The wines are very interesting, elegant and complex. It was one of the highlights during our visit to St. Emillion.
Ein außergewöhnliches Weingut mit einem einzigartigen Weinkeller in historischen Muschelkalk-Keller-Gewölben. Die Führung war ein Erlebnis aber die Verkostung blieb hinter unseren Erwartungen zurück. Die Weinauswahl war aus unserer Sicht nicht glücklich gewählt.
Our guide was amazing! Thank you for a great experience, and for making wonderful wine.
Belle visite accessible, à considérer comme un moment privilégié,! et merci à Loïc pour ces explications et son accueil M. ALVAREZ et Mme DES NOYERS
A lovely visit. The caves, history, wine making process were very interesting. The 2010, 2000, and 1990 vintages were all stellar.
Visite individuelle en intimité, très agréable. Surpris par la découverte du domaine et dégustation excellente.
Très belle prestation, intéressante et agréable. Une belle dégustation de vin avec des assortiments inattendu pour ma part.
Ha estat un privilegi poder fer la visita nosaltres sols i gaudir de la pau i la serenor de les galeries subterrànies del celler, lluny del brogit i el xivarri turístic de Sant Emilion. La guia ha estat molt amable amb nosaltres tenint en compte que no som uns experts en el món del vi. Ha estat una visita molt autèntica que ha valgut molt la pena!
Emily was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable and made a friendly presentation. We also loved the tasting. It was truly a beautiful visit!! David and Nicole
Nous avons pris l\'option \"dégustation verticale\" qui fut très instructive. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l\'intervention du sommelier compétent et à l\'écoute de nos questions.
Emelie nous a beaucoup expliqué et a été tres sympathique. Nous l’avons tres bien passé. Merci
Nous avons passé un très agréable moment avec des explications très précises tant sur les méthodes de vinifications que sur les différents millésimes que nous avons dégusté. Beau séjour Becot est a découvrir absolument. Merci à Loïc pour la decouverte. A bientot.
Très intéressante visite de cette magnifique maison. Impressionnantes réserves en sous-sol! Belle dégustation avec beaucoup d‘explications du sommelier de la maison. Bravo et merci!
Accueil très chaleureux et visite fort intéressante par un passionné. Nous reviendrons
Visite des caves du Château Beau-séjour Bécot très instructive suivie d\'une dégustation de 4 vins très professionnelle . Sommelier sympathique et pédagogique .
Une excellente visite des caves impressionnantes avec des milliers de vins et des millésimes anciens. De très bonnes explications sur le domaine et les classifications des vins. Une dégustation de 4 vins avec des chocolats et des macarons très instructive.
thank you very much for the private visit, received attention and paired tasting. we learned a lot while we had a very nice morning
Une superbe visite, superbement animée et pleine de pédagogie, suivie d’une parfaite dégustation! Je recommande absolument
Super visite et dégustation, merci! Je reprends du BSB 2019 en primeur!
Emily was the best host we could imagine. Smart, attentive, knowledgable and overall a great hostess. She showed us everything we loved. Beautiful Chateau and great wines. Super estate. We really enjoyed it and the Dutch Stroopwaffels are coming your way! Au revoir, Till next time, Lucas and Britt
L\'accueil de Emilie et sa passion pour le vin et le chateau ont ete formidables. Encore merci.
Merci pour l\'accueil personnalisé, la compétence et la passion d\'Emilie, ainsi que sa gourmandise et son humour. Nous avons été ravis de cette visite avec la réponse à toutes nos questions , sans filtre. Grand moment que la découverte des carrières souterraines et du stockage des grands crus. Délice de la dégustation avec initiation au goût, aux mélanges de saveurs et aux termes techniques . Belle expérience !
Très beau domaine, visite instructive, bonne sélection à la dégustation
Prestations de qualité et vins à découvrir. Animatrice à l\'écoute et très avenante, avec la bonne pointe d\'humour.
Pourquoi spécifier que les vins du domaine 1er cru atteignent leur plénitude aux alentours des 15 ans et faire gouter un vin de 2013?
Visite à faire absolument ! Mention spéciale à Emilie pour sa gentillesse, sa pédagogie et pour avoir rendu cette visite inoubliable.
Belle decouverte aux portes du centre du village. Explications tres claires par Loic , qui respire le gout de son travail de vigneron. Les caves sont magnifiques, tant du point de vue architectural que du vin qui y vieillit.
Thank you again for everything
Our guide, Loic, was fantastic. We really enjoyed the caves, that was interesting and very unique!
We loved the tour and Emilie is an excellent host. However, when we arrived no-one was there and the door was locked. After a few minutes a lady came to the door to tell us our host was running late - and then she locked the door again and left us outside in the rain!
Thanks again, was a lovely visit!
Très bon moment, de la visite à la dégustation. Explication technique. Superbes caves. Vin excellent. Visite accessible même pour des néophytes comme nous.
Very well run and organized, with a funny tour guide who was very welcoming.
Emilie gave me an excellent reception and tour. It was fascinating to learn about their methods of wine making as well as the effects of the elevation and terroir on the wine. The setting is stunning, and the caves are interesting. I very much enjoyed the tasting, as the wines are quite good, and each has a distinctive flavor profile. The older one was rather elegant and made me wish that I had visited 20 years ago and cellared several cases.
Un domaine à visiter!
Very nice experience. Emilie, the visit at the property, the tasting. Everything matches our expectations. Very good !
Enjoyed the tasting very much. I had heard of your wines but had not tasted them. We were pleased with the wines and the service we received. It was a very enjoyable experience.
Emilie and Loic are the best sommeliers to give you amazing experience in Chateau Beausejour Becot. It is always a personalized experience and the place and wines are amazing. The best in Saint Emilion for sure !
Très belle visite ,notre quide nous a été d’une grande gentillesse et nous a comblés . Francine et Pierre
Very good tour and tasting, really enjoyed every aspect! Thank you
Very interesting tour, especially of the limestone caverns under the domaine. Tasting was well executed.
After initial confusion when I came to my appointment on time but nobody was there everything went fine. This is a beautiful place, the tour was very informative, with good conversation, and answers to all my questions. Good wine tasting with different variety. I loved the wine and bought 4 bottles. I wish I could get more but I was visiting some other places that day and there is only so much a girl can carry. I will be back.
Ch. Beauséjour-Bécot is without doubt my go-to château in St-Emilion. The team is friendly, knowledgeable and generous with their time. The tour is interesting and the tasting is exceptional. Best of all, one gets a true sense of the ethos of the family owners, and it is also clear that the château wines are reaching ever greater heights every year. We look forward to our next visit.
It was the best wine tasting and tour we had in the Bordeaux region! Would definitely recommend it.
It was a great experience, very professional and friendly atmosphere.
This was my first trip to Bordeaux. Found Beau-Sejour Becot because they were one of the few wineries open on Saturday. Our guide was excellent and the tour was fabulous. We had not idea the limestone caves were there so walking through the caves and seeing the library of wines was one of the highlights of our entire trip. And of course the wines are incredible. I highly recommend a visit. I will be sure to visit again on my next trip.
We got to taste Chateau Beau-Séjour Becot 2013. 2013 was not a good wine year so it\'s not really a good reflection of the quality of the house. Visitors could get a lesser impression of how good Chateau Beau-Séjour Bécot actually is because they only got to taste a wine from a bad wine year. This undervalues the house in my regard.
Guide of the tour was excellent.
Amazing winery, tour, and host!
Interesting tour by a knowlegable woman.
Excellent tour by very knowledgable lady
Fantastic tour, the wines were delicious and the network of tunnels and caves underneath the winery are amazing. It was the highlight of our holiday.
Excellent tour and explanations. The wines were good, but I would like all wines at tasting to be very good quality rather than one or two mid quality and one final very good.
Un grand merci à Emilie. C'état parfait et passionnant. Un très grand merci pour l'accueil et l'adaptation au "public". Françoise
This was an excellent tour with a very kind and qualified guide!
Excellent visit and tour!
Tour was excellent and the chateau and cave are fascinating. We didn't ask for ant 'other activities'. We know the wine well - which is why we chose to visit - but can find it at cheaper prices (about 80% of the cost) in the UK via well known vintners.
Everyone enjoyed this visit and the gift they had for each of us was a nice touch.
nous avons eu la visite par caroline Bécot la fille du propriétaire. Cela a été formidable j'avais peur que cela soit trop guindé ce qui ne fut pas le cas. J'ai pu réaliser mon rêve de visiter un grand domaine. En deux mot c'était génial car nous avons eu la visite du propriétaire dans le chais.
The chateau is so beautiful and the lady doing the tour was so knowledgeable and very open to answer any questions. The cellars are amazing.
