Tasting Notes and Scores

With loads of minerality, a terrific opaque purple color, and slightly more structure and tannin than either Poyferre or St.-Pierre (and that’s saying something), this is a blockbuster, fabulous Ducru Beaucaillou that should be at its best a good decade from now and last 40-50 years. The proprietor is not alone in thinking this is the finest Ducru Beaucaillou since the 1961. The classic wet rock, creme de cassis, subtle oak and gravelly stoniness of the vineyard come through in this spectacular, full-bodied, gorgeously pure and intense effort. This is wine for the ages that should be forgotten for at least a decade.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Ducru Beaucaillou 2010 has a very classic bouquet with intense blackberry, briary and tobacco aromas - very expressive Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Pauillac mint developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, very linear but with lovely focus and class. This is a beautifully crafted Saint Julien with style and panache. Tasted January 2014.

2nd Growth St Julien. [90CS/10M] Closed, refined minerally above the delicately sweet cassis fruit; beautifully balanced, firmly and finely defined, concentrated Ducru, fresh in acidity, fine textured in firm tannin; long, freshly ripe, great race and aromatic scope; prolonged, taut, elegant, gently sweet cored, and with a very fine persistence of sweet fruit and mineral aromas on the finish. A great, complete, refined and classy Ducru, close to First Growth quality; will need 10-15 years. 2025-40+ [M.Schuster, Bordeaux Mar/Apr 2011]

The nose is phenomenal with perfect aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon with currant bush, blackberries and minerals. A pure expression of Cab. The palate is perfect with a full body, but has perfectly integrated tannins with a texture like the finest cashmere. It's strong but noble with perfect form and beauty. All in harmony. A fabulous wine that everyone who loves Bordeaux should have a bottle or case of. Better in 2020.
