Reviews for 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou Bordeaux Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
Very perfumed and beautiful showing blackberry and raspberry aromas with hints of vanilla. Deep and complex. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a long powerful finish. Excellent for the vintage. Best after 2015. -JS

Tasted at the château, the 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou has a precocious bouquet for the vintage: opulent ripe dark cherry, red plum and cassis fruit, mint and hints of vanilla pod. It is very well defined and very sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet opening, plenty of dark cherry and blackberry, Hoisin, a touch of cedar and again mint. There is fine depth here, surprisingly young with a dense, slightly tarry finish that suggests another 2-3 years will be appropriate. - Neal Martin

Deep vibrant aromas of currant sour cherry graphite cedar and licorice. Sappy suave and energetic with terrific verve and framing acidity to the tightly wound flavors of dark cherry currant spices and minerals. Wonderfully primary and penetrating Saint-Julien almost painfully intense yet weightless. Finishes very long and fine with terrific definition. An infant today with a long life ahead of it. 93+ points

Incredibly dark inky core surrounded by a bright fuchsia rim. On the nose rich blue fruits and sweet boysenberry are surrounded by butterscotch and a streak of cool minerality. Great power on the palate front to back... Incredibly dark inky core surrounded by a bright fuchsia rim. On the nose rich blue fruits and sweet boysenberry are surrounded by butterscotch and a streak of cool minerality. Great power on the palate front to back. Rich dark fruits are supported by a core of minerals and light metallics. Full and balanced this is one of the wines of the vintage. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Merlot.
