Description

Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru Classe, St Julien, Bordeaux, France, 2003

Grapes: A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, 75ha vineyard on gravel/clay soil, 18 months' ageing in new French oak barrels 

"A hot, dry summer resulted in a tiny production of under 10,000 cases of 2003 Ducru Beaucaillou from yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. This beauty boasts a deep plum/ruby/purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge. Aromas of licorice, creme de cassis, incense and spring flowers are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine with loads of fruit and glycerin as well as a plush texture. It is just entering its plateau of maturity where it should remain for another 10-15 years." 

94/100 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, August 2014

"Produced the very first year that Bruno Borie took over management of the estate, there was no leaf thinning in July during this notoriously hot summer, allowing for more shade on the bunches. Medium to deep garnet in color with a touch of brick, the 2003 Ducru-Beaucaillou reveals opulent notes of Indian spices, cigar box, sandalwood and licorice with a crème de cassis and plum preserves core plus a hint of rose oil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm, chewy texture and lovely freshness delivering a very long, spicy finish."

94/100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WINE ADVOCATE, August 2020 (Drink 2020-2036)
