WS 93
Wine Spectator, April 2008
A solid wine with plenty of rose petal berry and currant character. Full and chewy. Ripe and very powerful. Wait and see but impressive for the vintage.

Crushed cassis blackberry violet licorice and bitter chocolate on the very fresh nose. Then dense but light on its feet with lovely ripeness to the silky flavors of black fruits clove and bitter chocolate. Attractively sweet on the back end with fine-grained tannins and a suggestion of fig. This boasts an almost chocolatey ripeness and good minerality for the year and surprises with its firm structure.

The 2007 Ducru Beaucaillou has a generous red cherry and wild strawberry bouquet armed with very good fruit concentration. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy in the mouth with slightly lower acidity than its peers. Harmonious and velvety smooth, there is a fair amount of new oak here, but it is very well integrated with a caressing finish. It still has that Burgundian flair. This is excellent considering the growing season. Tasted March 2015. - Neal Martin

90% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot. Deep beautiful color in the glass with ripe cherry blueberry and tobacco on the nose. The mid-palate is soft like velvet.

The mid-palate is soft like velvet. This is a real show stopper to say the least. Purity of fruit and nicely integrated oak define this stellar wine. Beautiful now I suspect it will age gracefully for a number of years once it hits bottle. Very well done and highly reccomended.

Label

Ducru-Beaucaillou is a fine, elegant, and delicious wine with a long finish - in short, an archetypal Saint-Julien. The grapes are hand-picked, and the sorting process takes place on mobile tables in the vineyard to keep the healthy grapes separate from substandard ones. Fermentation is by traditional techniques and only the best fruit is used to produce the wine.

Winery

Ducru Beaucaillou

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is named after the beautiful large stones that characterize its unique Saint-Julien terroir. Unusual for Bordeaux, it is one of the only castles to be built directly above the barrel cellars and one of the few estates producing a ‘Grand Cru Classe’ still inhabited by its owners. The Borie family has owned this estate and has lived here for over sixty years, in the sumptuous aromas of their wine.

Rated a second growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, Ducru sits on an exceptional site with incomparable views over the Gironde estuary. Its 75-hectare vineyard is planted 70% to Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% to Merlot with an average vine age of 35 years.

Today, the estate is managed by the company Jean Eugene Borie SA, which is owned by Mrs. Borie, her daughter Sabine Coiffe and her son Bruno-Eugene.
