Producer Notes

Located in the appellation of Saint-Julien, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is named for the beautiful large stones and pebbles that cover the vineyard. These stones create ideal grape-growing conditions, as they aid in drainage, reflect sun onto the vines, and keep the ground from drying out. These conditions create the "typical" Saint-Julien wine - elegant and smooth, with a long finish. The... More »

Sultry garnet color. Pungent berry nose with a hint of tanned leather. Double decanted and allowed to open for a few hours. Silky, medium bodied and delightful. Tannins are still packing a decent punch. This will be a real beauty in years to come. I won't be cracking another until 2015+.

We had this as part of a Cabernet Sauvignon tasting on 10/3/09. It had a slightly reserved bouquet with tobacco, black currant, smoke, mineral and graphite aromas. The palate was smooth, balanced and very dry with black currant, blackberry, dirt, mineral, graphite and tobacco flavors. It was very earthy and absolutely terrific!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
