Expert's opinions

98 / 100
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
 Full-bodied, elegant, rich, multi-layered, and multi-faceted, the tobacco, cedar, currant, and wet forest profile on the nose was great. But the layers of ripe, lush, rich fruits with their silky, refined tannins stole the show. Popped and poured, perhaps 30 minutes or so would have improved the experience, but as the wine developed in the glass, we were more than happy.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 From my cellar, the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the most youthful of the Médoc crus classés today. Unwinding in the decanter and glass with a rich bouquet of blackcurrants, licorice, cigar wrapper and loamy soil, it's full-bodied, fleshy and muscular, with a broad attack that segues into a deep core of fruit framed by ripe, powdery tannins and succulent acids. It's an unusually big-boned rendition of this elegant-styled wine, but it's no less compelling for that.

A delicious, gorgeous wine that is ready to enjoy now. Layers of dried herbs, savory spices and leather mingle in this delicious wine at its peak.

Jean-Marc Quarin August - 1999

Colored. Slightly evolved and of good intensity. On the nose, humus, truffle on a very ripe fruity background with a touch of cedar and liquorice. Appetizing. Very attractive on the palate due to the pulpy, tender and fleshy texture. However, one could expect even more flesh in the center if one is demanding. The tanicity remains soft, tasty and aromatic, with good persistence on the finish. Drunk at the table in August 1999, I first enjoyed it with the steak, despite the high temperature. Immediately after the meat, the wine lacked power and it was necessary to drink more to make it tighten the mouth (clever to empty the bottle). And finally, the air gave it allure. Drink very easily.

 Strong crimson garnet, ruby reflections, quite dark color. On the nose ripe, dark berry confit, delicate dried fruit and nougat, a clear, clean nose, underlined with fine hints of spice. Substantial on the palate, fine ethereal hints, chocolaty notes, fine, powerful tannins, a highly elegant wine full of dark berry confit, delicate acidity, fine roasted aromas in the aftertaste, an absolutely perfect bottle. The other tasters had only rarely experienced this wine.

 Sweet, liquorice nose and rather attractively pungent on the finish. Still a very good wine with such fruit intensity that I initially took it for a right bank wine.

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. .
