Reviews for 2000 Ducru Beaucaillou Bordeaux Blend

JS 96
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2014
Wonderful rose and currant aromas with hints of mint. It’s full-bodied yet very finely textured, with good fruit concentration and length. Continuing to improve in the bottle.

Fantastic aromas of blackberries wild berries and minerals. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied and very tight with big silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Superb. A muscular Ducru. Best after 2010. 17500 cases made. (JS)

A stunning wine from Ducru Beaucaillou which showcases its great terroir, this elegant but substantial 2000 has a dense purple color that has hardly budged since it was first bottled. Displaying a floral note, with hints of boysenberries, black raspberries, black currants and a touch of background oak, the wine has superb concentration and density, but still has some substantial tannins that are not yet fully resolved. I originally predicted that it should be drinkable from 2010-2030, but I would modify that now to 2015-2035. - Robert M. Parker, Jr

($100-$135) Bright ruby-red less saturated than the 2002. Very pure aromas of cassis minerals and mocha with a hint of raw berries.

Very pure aromas of cassis minerals and mocha with a hint of raw berries. Juicy pure and tightly wound with intense flavors of dark berries bitter chocolate espresso and licorice. Broadens impressively on the long aromatic suave finish showing lovely grip and class. Finer than Borie's 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste and in need of longer aging but not clearly stronger. 92(+?) points
