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 »

This wine was surprising and certainly disappointing. Although it was seemingly made from ripe fruit and certainly a wonderful terroir, the texture was flaccid and almost too milky & creamy, as if the malolactic was poorly managed. Even the blackberry jam aromas and flavors were simply overwhelmed by the array of cloying milk chocolate mess and in desperate need of verve and complexity. The promising cedar edge that struck me on the finish lead me to believe that this sample was either not representative, or simply in a disjointed evolutionary stage. I hesitate to assess.

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.
