2009 du Château Ducru Beaucaillou Saint Julien

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Haut Médoc
Village Saint Julien
ABV 13%

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot. Massive, with a harmonious, warm ripeness. Full and supple, very velvety and fine, then very intensely expressive fruit. Very impressive juicy style, perhaps a tad fuller than Gloria, for example. Rating: 91+ L&S (Apr 2010)

Medium saturated color. Beautiful, soft, perfumed nose features cherry, smoke and tobacco. The reserved, elegant style reminds us of the Bordeaux of our youth, in a good way. On the palate, wine #4 is the most accessible in the first flight of five. It displays medicinal, mint and mushroom flavors that add up to a complex wine. In terms of weight, it's relatively light. The acidity is first-rate. An earthy elegance takes hold through a long finish, winning us over. Rating: 95 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (May 2014)

The richness of cassis backed by bramble gives flesh on the nose and this depth of flavour enriches the palate. The sweetness of the fruit and rounded tannins gives richness but nothing jammy as there is enough bilberry and bramble freshness to balance. The firmness on the back palate gives the finish a serious quality. 2018-30 Rating: 90-93 Derek Smedley MW, (Dec 2013)

Yet another top château whose second wine isn’t so far behind the grand vin in terms of quality, Ducru has produced a stunner here. It’s very much a Cabernetbased style, with muscular structure and fresh acidity, but the tannins are beautifully handled, enveloped by notes of dark chocolate, plum and sweet blackberries. 15+ years.
