Dark red color, medium intensity, mature. Nose of medium intensity. Fruity. Animal. Caramel note. Resin. Very distinguished mouth and lace that I tasted much wider previously. Long and subtle finish.

Get ready for big Ducru cinema: strong crimson garnet, ruby reflections, delicate ocher edge, quite dark color. Inviting dark berry jam on the nose, delicate hints of plums, some nougat, blackberries, but also the typical tobacco-cedar nuances. Elegant, juicy and sweet on the palate, showing a finesse, balanced structure, silky tannins, wonderful wild berry jam in the aftertaste. A perfectly matured wine offers the greatest drinking pleasure today, what are you waiting for?

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
  "1970 was a generous vintage, and back then, when it was generous, we let it be generous!" Proprietor Bruno Borie informed me during the tasting of this 1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou at the chateau. Medium brown in color with a remaining touch of brick, the nose reveals a wonderfully fragrant perfume of dried figs, sultana cake and baking spices with hints of dusty soil, dried herbs plus a subtle waft of crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers bold freshness, laden with dried red berries flavors and mineral-inspired sparks, framed by chewy tannins, finishing spicy.

 This vintage is now starting to fade with the fruit just on the border of drying out. Silky, soft, light-bodied red that reflects the traditional, restrained styles prevalent in the 1970s.

Leaving aside Latour, I rate Ducru and Cheval Blanc as the best of the '70s.

Château Ducru Beaucaillou
Château Ducru Beaucaillou

The Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, is a vineyard of 75 hectares, located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle in the Gironde. AOC Saint-Julien, he is ranked a second growth in the famous in the Grand Cru rankings of 1855. The first traces of the estate date back to the thirteenth century. The castle was for centuries, until 1720, the property of the Bergeron family. In 1795 the estate was ceded to the  Ducru family and the it took their name.  Bertrand Ducru then undertook radical changes to the castle (with the help of architect Paul Abadie) and the new viticulture installations (new winery). The consecration of these efforts will be the status of second growth ranking in the 1855 classification. In 1866, the castle was sold to the family of Nathaniel Johnston (1836-1914), a wine merchant and potter from Bordeaux, mayor and representative of St. Julian. The financial crisis of 1929 forced Nathaniel Johnston to sell the estate to the Desbarats family  and after only twelve years they ceded it to the Borie family, who still owns the castle today. Terroir. Ducru-Beaucaillou is named after the big stones Günz having a thickness from 6 to 8 m. The implantation iis 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot 30%, with the desire not to use or Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc. The vines are an average of 35 years old, and are planted in high density (10,000 plants / ha). Wine. Ducru-Beaucaillou also produces a second wine, La Croix de Beaucaillou. .
