This chateau has performed to a consistently high standard beginning in the 1990's. Its holdings of nearly 200 acres are adjacent to 1st Growth Mouton-Rothschild and are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot averaging 35 years of age. Picking is by hand, followed by sorting, and fermentation takes place in a variety of vats. The chateau utilizes about 60% new oak. The 1995 delivers the profile expected of a top, long-lived Pauillac, exhibiting a concentrated core of black fruits along with a rich center held in by a firm backbone of tannin. Still quite youthful and structured, this wine will require cellaring of at least another decade to soften and open - and then will no doubt reward keeping for many more years if you can be patient! Robert Parker 92, Wine Spectator 94.

The greatest Ducru produced this century. Breathtaking aromas of berries violets vanilla and blackberries set the stage for a wine that s full-bodied and tannic yet very fine and long in the mouth... Wine Spectator.

Dark ruby-red. Black- and redcurrants and smoke on the nose; less oak-spicy today than the '96. Silky and harmonious but currently rather withdrawn. Not quite as sweet as the '96. Here the substantial toothcoating tannins come across as somewhat toug... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Pontet-Canet 750ml

This wine is of first-growth quality, not only from an intellectual perspective, but in its hedonistic characteristics. More open-knit and accessible than the extraordinary 1996, Ducru's 1995 exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color, followed by a knock-out nose of blueberry and black raspberry/cassis fruit intertwined with minerals, flowers, and subtle toasty new oak. Like its younger sibling, the wine possesses a sweet, rich mid-palate (from extract and ripeness, not sugar), layers of flavor, good delineation and grip, but generally unobtrusive tannin and acidity. It is a classic, compelling example of Ducru-Beaucaillou that should not be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025.

Subtle yet aromatic character of Indian spices, currants and dried cherries. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. Wonderful texture. Classy and structured. Long. This was wine of the year in 1998; well
