Ducru Beaucaillou Cs 2005
- Show All (94)
Tasting with a bunch of 2006s, so maybe it felt unbelievably smooth because of the extra years' aging. An alluring open nose with lots of fruit. Sweet fruit compote flavors on the palate. Evolved tannins. Voluptuous - evolves in the mouth. The fruit is even lush and sweet. Very very good wine with a great finish.
A wine to celebrate.

Pauillac, Bordeaux, FranceChateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac 2005 is a red wine gem for true lovers of the grape. The world's leading wine critics have spoken:Robert Parker 96+Wine Spectator 96, Top 100 Wines of the Year 2008 (#7)Stephen Tanzer 95Connoisseurs' Guide 95What more can we say about this amazing wine? Only that we advise you to hurry before our very limited supply is sold out!We especially loved Stephen Tanzer's review of the wine:Complex, enticing aromas of black raspberry, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate, lead pencil and pungent cedar; just this side of exotic. Wonderfully silky, sweet and thick, with a powerful minerality framing the currant, graphite and spice flavors. This boasts superb inner-mouth energy and great length, with the full, ripe tannins totally enrobed by the wine's mid-palate richness.Enjoy Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac with filet mignon, Charolais beef, ratatouille, and cheeses.
Glorious aromas of currants, blackberries and cherries with hints of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied, with exuberant fruit. Velvety tannins. Soft and round mouthfeel. This is supercharged with fruit. Wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Very low yi... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Pontet-Canet 750ml
The greatest Ducru produced this century. Full-bodied and structured yet with characteristic Ducru elegance, this has all the elements for aging. This is the first appearance in the Top 100 for Ducru since the 1985 ranked No. 18 in 1988. Its futures price of $50 quickly soared to $95.
Bright ruby-red, less saturated than the 2002. Very pure aromas of cassis, minerals and mocha, with a hint of raw berries. Juicy, pure and tightly wound, with intense flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate, espresso and licorice. Broadens impressively on the long, aromatic, suave finish, showing lovely grip and class. Finer than Borie's 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste and in need of longer aging but not clearly stronger.
Good deep ruby-red. Wonderfully sweet, aromatic nose combines currant, chocolate and cedary oak. Fat, lush and silky, with atypical volume to the flavors of plum, tobacco and chocolate. Wonderfully supple, plump wine with layers of flavor, thoroughly sweet tannins and compelling aromatic persistence. Today the wine's substantial baby fat is masking its impressive underlying power. According to Borie, this 2005 combines the best traits of the chateau's 2003 and 2000.
