2013 Ducru Beaucaillou

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2013
Appellation: St Julien
93 (NM)
The vineyards at Ducru run almost down to the Gironde, lying between those of Beychevelle to the north and Latour, in the commune of Pauillac, to the south.This highly regarded St. Julien is one of Bordeaux's true aristocrats with a history of wine making heading back to the mid-fourteenth century. Given a deuxiemes cru classification in 1855, the château is rightly held in similar regard to the neighbouring Leoville estates. However it is the modern era (post 1990 and particularly in the 2000s and onwards) that is really becoming the defining period for Ducru Beaucaillou. Since 2008, it carries an average Wine Advocate score of 95+, a sure sign that this is a winegrower at the very top of his game. Compound this reputed estate with its flamboyant, charismatic estate manager Bruno Borie and you have a winning partnership. Packing bundles of passion into each vintage Robert Parker comments that “Bruno Borie has done a remarkable job at Ducru Beaucaillou…if you haven't noticed yet, it's time to jump on the bandwagon.

Tasting Notes and Scores

93

Neal Martin

The 2013 Ducru Beaucaillou has a lifted blackberry, wild hedgerow and mint-scented bouquet, perhaps lacking some presence at first, but give this a few swirls and it gains more intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit on the entry, decent depth on the mid-palate, quite approachable thanks to the supple tannin and it handles the 100% new oak very well. When I discussed the wine with proprietor Bruno Borie, he was adamant that he would not reduce it. It has certainly put on a little weight since I tasted it from barrel and as such, it has good potential to become one of the go-to 2013 (no oxymoron intended) Left Bank wines.

James Suckling

This is real wine with a tasty and rich palate with chocolate, stone and berry. Medium to full body with refined tannins and a savory texture. A wine for pleasure. Drink or hold.
