2013 Ducru Beaucaillou

Average critic rating : 90.75 points



A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the 2013 Ducru Beaucaillou achieved 13% natural alcohol. This beauty possesses a lot more texture than many 2013s as well as a deep ruby/purple color, a serious mid-palate, lots of cassis and spring flower characteristics intermixed with notions of oak and forest floor, medium body, and a ripe, soft personality. It will be ideal for drinking in its first decade or more of life. ||There is no doubting the remarkable effort Bruno Borie has made at this gorgeous estate that frequently behaves like a first-growth. In 2013, the harvest took place between September 26 and October 9, with less than 50% of the crop going into the grand vin. Wine Advocate.August, 2014



Some punch here on the nose.  Some weight and some real St Julien character.  This is Ducru.  And punchy in the mouth too.  A touch of oak but more than enough St Julien fruit to match it.  Muscular.  And gets better as it goes on.  This has purity, elegance.  Very nicely put together and this will keep.  There is some depth coming through in the finish.  Long, fresh.  Very good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2014.
