K&L Notes

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. "Ducru-Beaucaillou declared world's best Cab blend in blind tasting ... Despite the presence of all five Bordeaux first growths in the tasting, the second growth property from Saint-Julien gained the highest average score when the results were added from a group of tasters, who were made up of UK press and included Sarah Ahmed, Gerard Basset MW, Peter Richards MW, Martin Moran MW, Richard Hemming and db's Patrick Schmitt." (Drinks Business, 11/2013) 95 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Ducru Beaucaillou ‘09 has a classy, sophisticated bouquet with blackberry, dark plum, and a hint of cassis and oyster shell. It displays fine delineation and composure. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe entry. There is very good weight and structure here, a sense of symmetry and grace that is very appealing. This is one of Bruno Borie’s finest wines ...although I think the 2010 might turn out even better." (01/2013)

    Super-long, with great depth, a plush middle and a ripe, spicy finish. The tannins were fine and well-integrated.

    **½ Intriguing, exotic nose of Asian spices mixed with toasty oak. A very sensual wine, but so different from the Ducrus of past great vintages. Satin-textured with a lingering finish.
