Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2ieme Grand Cru Classe Case of 6 Bottles 2000
- Show All (94)
Taking on a nice aged Bordeaux character. Smokey with hints of vanilla in the nose. Good acid and earthy character. Nice long finish.
It was smooth, but I didn't think the finish was particularly strong (sorry Jancis!).
Great, very classic Pauillac red, super to enjoy now if decanted well in advance or can be kept another 10 years.
External Reviews for Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2ieme Grand Cru Classe Case of 6 Bottles
Ruby-red. Reticent but pure aromas of cassis, blueberry, minerals, Cuban cigar tobacco and deep spices. Quite closed in the mouth today, with subtly complex dark berry and spice flavors. Not exactly dense but sappy and rather pliant. Finishes with su... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Ducru Beaucaillou 3000ml
One of the most compelling Ducru Beaucaillou's made in the last quarter century is the 2003 (which is also the first vintage to be packaged in an impressive heavy glass bottle with a special long cork). A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, it is a powerful, tannic, blockbuster effort revealing a liqueur of mineral-like component intermixed with creme de cassis, raspberry, and flower characteristics, and an atypically high 13.5% alcohol. Having firmed up considerably since bottling, it exhibits tremendous definition, weight, and concentration. It is a wine for patient connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025+. A brilliant tour de force!
Loads of crushed berries on the nose, with hints of flowers and minerals. Very aromatic. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, cappuccino and berry aftertaste. Really refined. Best after 2009.
A stunning wine from Ducru Beaucaillou which showcases its great terroir, this elegant but substantial 2000 has a dense purple color that has hardly budged since it was first bottled. Displaying a floral note, with hints of boysenberries, black raspberries, black currants and a touch of background oak, the wine has superb concentration and density, but still has some substantial tannins that are not yet fully resolved. I originally predicted that it should be drinkable from 2010andndash;2030, but I would modify that now to 2015andndash;2035.
Extremely pretty aromas of mineral, blackberry and raspberry. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Well-crafted red. The best Pontet-Canet ever. Best after 2010. 2,330 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Pontet-Canet 750ml
Bright medium ruby. Deep, superripe aromas of dark berries, black cherry and bitter chocolate; slightly exotic crystallized fruit aspect. Dense, sweet and wonderfully rich; a lovely combination of palate-caressing chocolately fruit and firm underlying structure. Finishes with excellent grip and great palate-saturating sweetness. Another outstanding 1996 Médoc wine in the making. Drink 2010 through 2030.
Show outstanding structure and definition. New oak comes through in the coffee and plum aromas and the palate is firm and concentrated, with delicious blackberry flavors. Hold until 2000 for it to soften and bloom.
