Tasting Notes and Scores

87

Wine Advocate

I have never been a fan of this wine. I lost confidence in it when it was around ten years of age because of its hard, angular, austere, tannic style. In the most recent tasting, the wine exhibited more ripe fruit than I had previously noticed. There is still plenty of astringent, aggressive tannin, but the balance is better, and the wine reveals a complex, earthy, cedar, curranty nose with dried fruit and herb components, full body, and a classic, old style personality. It displays more finesse and character than it did at a younger age. Like many 1975s, it will keep for 20+ years ... but will the fruit hold up?

The 1975 Ducru Beaucaillou is a vintage that I had not encountered for 15 years but my God, what a wonderful wine! Surely the best between 1970 and 1982, the 1975 is beautifully balanced with ample fruit on the quite precocious nose that is more akin to a 1982 or 1985. Certainly unlike some of its more esteemed counterparts, this 1975 shows no signs of drying out or hard tannins, one of the best I have encountered for some time. Tasted May 2018

Decanter

Good nose, lovely clean fruit; an excellent wine that is holding up extremely well, although as with all of these it is fully in its drinking window, and should be enjoyed soon. This was aged in both cement vats and oak barrels. Ducru was owned by the Borie family in 1975, as it is today, but as they had not yet bought Grand Puy Lacoste (1978), both Jean-Eugène Borie and his son François Xavier were making the wine here in Saint Julien (although François-Xavier would not join full time until 1978). An estate that often takes a long time to soften, even in more celebrated vintages, this really showcases its potential to hold steady and reward long ageing.
