Beckmen Cuvee Le Bec Red 2018
The Cuvee le Bec is made of 43% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 14% Mouvedre and 8% Counoise. Harvesting at Beckmen begins in September and runs through to mid-November. Grapes are hand harvested at nights to ensure that they are picked at the lowest temperature when grapes are the most flavorful.
Less than 10-12 tons of grape per day is harvested as only the ripest grapes get picked. Wines are made in small lots then blended for depth and complexity. The Cuvee le Bec has bright red fruit, spices and hints of black pepper flavors on the nose. The brightness and freshness of the fruit extends to the palette giving the wine great length and making the wine very approachable.
