Critic Notes

Here the nose is compositionally similar to the straight villages with the exceptions of being a bit more elegant and with a bit less emphasis on the earth component. The supple and suave middle weight flavors display the hallmark minerality of a fine Lavières with well-integrated fine-grained tannins adding support to the firm, balanced and beautifully persistent finish. If this can add depth in bottle my score may be overly conservative. <B>Tasted: Apr 15, 2013. Drink: 2017+</b>

Along with Leoville Lascases, Ducru-Beaucaillou is arguably the best wine of St Julien, producing wines that can often match the first growths in terms of quality, and doing so with some panache. Bruno Borie has performed wonders here since 2003. The vineyard area has been roughly halved – only the best plots, those that surround the chateau, are used for ...
