Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A hot, dry summer resulted in a tiny production of under 10,000 cases of 2003 Ducru Beaucaillou from yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. This beauty boasts a deep plum/ruby/purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge. Aromas of licorice, creme de cassis, incense and spring flowers are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine with loads of fruit and glycerin as well as a plush texture. It is just entering its plateau of maturity where it should remain for another 10-15 years.

Tasted at Farr’s Ducru-Beaucaillou dinner at the Ledbury. This is not the best bottle of 2003 Ducru that I have encountered for it does not have the precision that I was hoping for. It has a sweet blackberry, dark plum and camphor-tinged bouquet whilst the palate is full-bodied with furry, very firm tannins. The finish is loaded with glycerin that coats the mouth, but it does not show any excessive heat. Tasted October 2010.
