WINESPECTATOR: "Offers exotic, cashmere-textured, mocha-infused blackberry, cassis and plum puree flavors, with smoldering incense and warm fruitcake notes and a swath of plush yet serious grip too boot, showing ample depth and breath. As distinctive a Bordeaux as there is these days. Best from 2025 through 2040. 7,500 cases made."

WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This wine conveys density but its richness is sublimated by the complex structure and beautiful ripe fruit. Its power comes from the structure as much as the fruit, promising a wine with an immensely long life ahead of it. Drink from 2025."

DECANTER: "Rich and silky in texture, there's some lovely cinnamon and black pepper spice here, with lovely grip from the very fine tannins and good drive too. It's extremely precise, with every piece in its place, a considered and drawn out style featuring notes of menthol and bitter dark chocolate. It's really bedding in for the long haul. It shows that even the second wines can be powerful and concentrated in 2016."

JAMES SUCKLING: "Super perfumed, attractive violets with a thread of fresh blueberries, cassis, blackberries and dark plums, delivering a very enticing impression. Beautiful ripeness here. The tannins are perfectly ripe and layers meld into each other, carrying deep, graceful and plush, velvety dark fruit long into the vibrant and seductive, chocolate-laced finish. Great potential. Try from 2024."

ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2016 Ducru-Beaucaillou, bottled in August 2018, is very deep in color. It has a tightly wound bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and minerals and a faint estuarine tang of oyster shells. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, layers of pure blackberry and wild strawberry, and veins of blue fruit tinged with a conspicuous graphite note that becomes more pronounced with aeration. This is almost a Pauillac-like Ducru-Beaucaillou, quite noble and blue-blooded. A wine that should give 40 to 50 years of drinking pleasure."

THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Voluptuous, silky, dense and rich, the wine hits your palate and stays there with layers of lusciously textured, perfectly ripe cassis and blackberries. Full-bodied, concentrated and balanced between power and elegance, this is a stunning example of Ducru Beaucaillou. It is hard to decide if I prefer the sensuality on the palate, the length or purity. So I did what needed to be done, I took another sip. And with this in your glass, you will do the same. The wine is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot."

FALSTAFF: "Leuchtendes Rubingranat, opak, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Reife Kirschenfrucht, feine dunkle Beerennoten unterlegt, feine Edelholzwürze, zart nach Orangenzesten, süße Gewürze im Hintergrund. Komplex, feine Schokonote, reife Pflaumenfrucht, perfekt reife Tannine, finessenreich strukturiert, angenehme Extraktsüße im Abgang, mineralisch und anhaltend, minutenlanger Abgang."

JEB DUNNUCK: "Reminding me of the 2010 with its incredible stature and class (as opposed to the more opulently styled 2009), the 2016 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a legendary wine from the genius of Bruno Borie, who has managed this estate brilliantly since he arrived in 2003. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot brought up all in new oak, the 2016 has a mammoth bouquet of crème de cassis, espresso, camphor, crushed violets, toasty oak, and graphite. Full-bodied, concentrated, and backward on the palate, it nevertheless has perfectly integrated acidity and building tannins, a concentrated, layered texture, off-the-charts purity of fruit, and a finish that won't quit. Give this powerful, concentrated wine a solid 7-8 years of bottle age and enjoy it over the following 50 years or more."

THE WINEADVOCATE: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Ducru-Beaucaillou features a wonderfully savory, earthy/meaty nose, delivering well-defined notes of tapenade, truffles, charcuterie and sautéed herbs over crème de cassis, wild blueberries and kirsch with wafts of pencil lead and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with the taut, muscular fruit well framed by very firm yet very ripe and finely grained tannins, offering a quiet intensity of red fruit and mineral sparks and finishing with epic length."
Zum Weingut
Ducru Beaucaillou ist ein echter Langstreckenläufer. Ein Ducru Beaucaillou braucht immer Zeit, um sein ganzes Potential zu offenbaren. Vielleicht liegt es an dem relativ hohen Prozentsatz von 70% Cabernet Sauvignon in der Cuvée, der Rest ist Merlot. Wenn ein Ducru Beaucaillou jedoch reif ist, geht die Post ab. Dies beweisen Jahrgänge wie 1961, 1970 und 1978. Aber Achtung: Zwar mögen viele Ducru Beaucaillou, viele bevorzugen aber auch andere St. Juliens. Ducru Beaucaillou ist eben kein moderner, fetter, weicher, reifer Wein. Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou gehört einst wie Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste und Chateau Haut Batailley der Familie Borie. Mit dem Tod von Jean-Eugène Borie 1998 wurde das Erbe der drei Güter nun zwischen den beiden Brüdern Xavier Borie und Bruno Borie aufgeteilt wurde. Somit war der 2003 Ducru Beaucaillou der erste Jahrgang, der ganz unter den Fittichen von Bruno Borie entstand.
