Ducru Beaucaillou 2009 1.5L

Region: Saint-Julien, Bordeaux

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot



Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2009 is a stunning wine with a deep, intense garnet color with purple hues. The nose is powerful and complex, offering notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, and black cherry, combined with vanilla, spices, and cedarwood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, with a rich, velvety texture and a perfect balance of fruit, acidity, and tannins. The flavors of dark fruit are complemented by hints of chocolate, espresso, and earthy undertones. The finish is long and elegant, leaving a pleasant aftertaste of sweet spices and ripe fruit. This is a wine with great aging potential and will continue to develop its complexity and finesse over the next decades.

Robert Parker - 98 Points

"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou bursts from the glass with bombastic crème de cassis, black cherry compote and preserved plums notes followed by hints of menthol, hoisin, dusty soil and incense plus fragrant wafts of candied violets and baker’s chocolate. Full bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, the palate offers a beautifully plush texture and bags of freshness, finishing long and layered. An absolute powerhouse!"

Antonio Galloni - 97 Points

"The 2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a fantastic wine. Here it bursts from the glass, perhaps less Pauillac-like than previous bottles, beautifully defined with a smorgasbord of red and black fruit laced with cedar and tobacco. There is no hedonism here, just wonderful intensity and focus. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, very poise yet powerful with a multi-layered finish that just lacquers the mouth. It probably needs another 5-6 years in bottle, but what a wine. Stunning. Tasted at the Ducru Beaucaillou vertical at the château."
