Description

95    Jane Anson for Decanter
“This is not quite as silky smooth and rich as the 2005 and yet it’s full of promise. It feels young, with tannins that are still pulsating around the dark berry fruits, joined by eucalyptus and cigar box notes through the finish. With clear depth of flavor, it’s a classically framed St Julien, full of dark cheer, a winter wine for nights by the fire with good food and good friends.” (9/2019)

95    James Suckling
“Subtle aromas of currants, blueberries and minerals. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a fine, fine finish. I love the texture to this wine, and it’s just starting to show you the true quality it has. One of the top wines of this vintage.” (7/2013)

95    Wine Spectator
“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.” *Top 100 Wines of 2009, Collectible* (3/2009)

94    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Deep garnet in color, the 2006 Ducru-Beaucaillou delivers expressive Black Forest cake, blackcurrant cordial and chocolate box scents with touches of fertile loam, espresso, Marmite toast and black olives. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with vibrant fruit expression and a firm, grainy texture, finishing with a lively lift.” (8/2020)

94    Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast
“This is that rare Bordeaux Cabernet that comes close in style to a Napa Cabernet. The character comes from the mint aromas and medicinal edge, formed from new wood aging. At this stage in its development, the wine is powerful, but closed and tight. However, it is possible to taste the ripe perfumes and the black cherry juice flavors that come through the vanilla.” (3/2009)
