Madame de Beaucaillou, Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France, 2020
Grapes: 66% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, vineyards owned by Ducru Beaucaillou in the Haut-Medoc, aged for twelve months in Bordeaux barrels (20% in new oak)
Critics' Tasting Notes:
"The 2020 Madame de Beaucaillou exhibits notes of cassis, pencil shavings, plums and violets, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively palate that's structured around youthfully firm, chalky tannins. It should reward a bit of patience. It's derived from some 50 hectares of vineyards in Listrac and Cussac."
89/100 points, William Kelley, WINE ADVOCATE
"Medium-bodied, chewy, fresh and fruity, with a nice core of ripe cassis on the nose and palate, this is perfect for enjoying in cafes and bistros. This should drink quite well on release and over the next decade. This solid value wine offers a lot of Left Bank character, and it sells for a song."
90/100 points, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, May 2021
