Food Pairings for Ducru Beaucaillou
It will be a 10 in 10 years from now
Undecanted from a preservation machine. Tight nose of fruit, vanilla, and hints of volatiles and mineral. Reasonable balance in the mouth with sour ripe muted fruit competing with slightly bitter leather. A bit watery mid-palate with drying tannins. Short finish of slightly bitter fruit and smoke. Tannin medium plus, acid medium, body medium or lighter. Dry. Needs time to breath, perhaps a day.
Tested from a preservation machine. On the nose mild sweet floral spice, smoke, and earth with hints of sour dark fruit alongside. Tastes quite young, a bit watery mid-palate but nicely balanced and integrated with notes of wood, smoke. Fruit (cassis, dark fruit) is mostly in the background. Fuzzy almost grippy tannins at the front of the tongue. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium plus. Needs serious decanting, or better let it age another 3+ yrs and try it then.
Great example of how quality young Bordeaux transforms with 1 hour decanting. Before decanting: Cassis, blackberry on nose, a little pine on pallet but tannin overpowers fruit. After 1hr decanting: Red brick, peppermint, velvety finish...very nice after 1 HR decanting. 1995 still superior but more expressive than 1982.

External Reviews for Ducru Beaucaillou
Verführerische, feinwürzige Nase. Er besticht durch primär dunkle Früchte wie schwarze Johannisbeere oder Brombeere und Zedernholz in der Nase sowie am Gaumen.
Es ist ein klassischer, typischer Wein aus der Appellation Saint-Julien, der sich im Glas offenbart: ausgewogenes, vielschichtiges und delikates Bouquet: ein Schmeichler par excellence. So wie man die Weine aus dieser Appellation kennt: feminine Noten, aber auch Stoff und Struktur. Es ist kein alltäglicher Wein, der sich auch im Gaumen offenbart. Und das Finale zeigt alles: Es ist die Quintessenz eines Rotweins, der einfach gefällt und verführt. Dieses erstklassige Gewächs ist wertvoll und prestigeträchtig zugleich.
The celebrated Classified Growth from St. Julien. Robert Parker rated it 93 pts and said 'One cant say enough about the efforts Bruno Borie is pouring into this wonderful estate that I have often called the Lafite Rothschild of St.-Julien. An undeniable success the 2004 Ducru boasts sweet aromas of creme de cassis spring flowers pain grille licorice and road tar. This pure medium-bodied wine possesses moderately high tannin superb concentration good sweetness and low acidity. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years.' This item excluded from any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.
A brilliant effort from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, Pontet-Canet's 2004 may ultimately prove to be a better wine than its more famous neighbor, Mouton Rothschild. Medium to full-bodied with a classic creme de cassis-scented perfume, sweet fruit, ripe... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Pontet-Canet 375ml
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's Pontet-Canet dinner at The Ledbury. The 2004 has a very expressive nose, especially when compared to the 2005 at this stage. Lifted scents of blackberry, cedar and mint with something just a little decadent in the backgroun... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Pontet-Canet 750ml
A great success from a château that has undergone a renaissance as of late. This Pontet-Canet adeptly straddles the line between the fruit-forward modern style and more traditional, focused wines, with notes of mineral and earth adding support to the bright berry fruit.

5 Stars Decanter 11/07 "Shows beautiful aromas of crushed berries and currant, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lovely currant, licorice and mint. Long and caressing. Very refined and balanced. Another winner from Pontet-Canet….93" WA 3/07.
