85% cabernet sauvignon and 15% merlot. Located over 75 hectares between Beychevelle to the north and Latour to the south. Vines are planted in gravel and "cailloux" the large pebbles that gave the estate its name. Aged in 95% new oak for up to 18 months. 2011 saw Ducru Beaucaillou s lowest yields in 25 years due much in part to extensive green harvesting. Nearly opaque at the core with a beautiful bright ruby/violet rim. Aromas of black cherry baking chocolate and boysenberry emerge from the glass. Sho

Purple color of good intensity. Fruity floral fresh and ripe nose. Very lovely and tasty on entry the wine develops finely pulpy with taste flesh and fine tannins. Enjoyable and aromatic on the finish. This is delicious and with depth. Good length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

Winemaker's Notes:

"A wine with very clear fruit definition and minerals with hints of flowers. Full body with fine tannins and a a fresh finish. Mineral and dried flowers. Long and crisp. Lovely quality of tannins here. Racy. Lover to see a little more fruit concentration in mid-palate... 92-93" JS 04/12 "A big, broad-shouldered style, with lots of bittersweet cocoa and coffee up front, followed by thick-textured blackberry and black currant fruit. Shows a bit more brute force than purity right now, though hard to deny the concentration and depth. Could move up if it stretches out and gains some finesse...90-93" WS 04/12 "Once again proprietor Alfred Tesseron has produced a wine of first-growth potential. One of the superstars of the vintage, Pontet-Canet’s 2011 exhibits an opaque purple color and a glorious bouquet of incense, subtle toast and copious quantities of creme de cassis. There is a floral underpinning, decent acidity and ripe tannin to this full-bodied effort. Big, rich, round and generously endowed, it should drink well for 20-25+ years...93-95" WA 04/12
