Saint-Émilion Grand Cru


100% Merlot

Region: Bordeaux


The Bécot family acquired the Gomerie vineyard in 1995, an adjacent plot of 2.5 hectares, from which a wine is produced in the manner of "Garage wine". From a small vineyard of extremely low yields, the wine performs according to "Garagiste" norms, with new wood predominance, a small production, high ratings from Robert Parker.


This 2.5 hectare property located in Saint-Émilion on mostly clayey-sandy terroirs at the foot of a hill has been owned by Geìrard and Dominique Bécot (Beau-Séjour-Bécot) since 1995. The vineyard is the former enclosure of Fayse abbey, to which La Gomerie manor house is attached.

The wine produced at Château La Gomerie is pure Merlot produced predominantly on sandy soils with clay and iron residues in the subsoil, and on the asteries limestone plateau at Beau-Séjour Bécot.


This micro-cuvée is produced by teams at the Château Beauséjour-Bécot, with the help of oenologist Michel Rolland. The renowned consultant uses classic “garagiste” winemaking techniques: vines aged approximately forty years old are meticulously tended, yields are strictly regulated and harvesting takes place as late as possible.

The wine is aged for twenty months in new barrels. The second wine is Mademoiselle La Gomerie. It is produced in very small quantities and such is the quality of this cuvée lauded by critics for its sumptuous silkiness that it is almost unobtainable on the French market.


Ripe plum, cassis and a hint of black truffle on the nose and palate.
Fruits really showing off with a decent balance. Sweet refined tannin.

"The 1999 is very good to excellent, with medium body, noteworthy fat, ripe black cherry fruit, lavish quantities of toasty new oak, and firm tannin in the finish.' Robert Parker

Best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Chateau La Gomerie is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta.
