Average Score 89.0

Delivers lots of tanned leather and spices, with very ripe fruit, from dried strawberry to raisin, turning to jam. Full-bodied, offering a very fresh palate of exotic fruit, currant and raisin as well as silky and polished tannins. So long and beautiful. Why wait? But it has a long life ahead. There is a lot of bottle variation in this wine due to TCA issues, but this is a beauty.¿'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now.-James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010
Ducru's 1989 was one of the more tannic, backward wines in the blind tasting. It is cleanly made, and well-crafted, with plenty of black-raspberry and cassis fruit nicely touched by minerals and a fragrant, floral component. Medium-bodied, elegant, and well-endowed, this is a potentially outstanding wine if all the tannin melts away over the next 5-6 years. One of the least flattering 1989s to drink at present, it requires 4-5 more years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020.|| Wine Advocate.February, 1997
The 1989 Ducru Beaucaillou has an unenviable reputation as a hit 'n miss wine, since this was the period when the chateau suffered a TCA infection in the roof. This bottle seemed to have been affected, but perhaps that diverts you from this rather humdrum Ducru compared to recent spectacular vintages courtesy of Bruno Borie. The nose is staid and lacks fruit concentration in the context of the vintage, dusty and smudged. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, somehow hollow and shallow with a very one-dimensional finish that doesn't exactly leave you begging for another sip. If you want to play Russian roulette, then go for the 1989, though personally I would prefer to drink any vintage from the last decade. Tasted April 2016. Jul 2016, www.robertparker.com
