With a great location in the town of Saint-Philippe d'Aiguilhe, Château Joanin Bécot is one of the most beautiful references of the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux.
Château Joanin Bécot watches over an almost 15-hectare terroir. Planted on a large clay-limestone terroir with asterias, the old vines are 40 years old on average and produce fine Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux wines.
