The 2005 Ducru Beaucaillou is a 10,000-case blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot (they used to produce 18,000-20,000 cases). It is an exceptionally powerful wine with a dense purple color, superb intensity, and a beautiful, sweet nose of spring flowers, raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and creme de cassis. Full-bodied with fabulous concentration, exceptionally high tannin, good acidity, and massive layers of richness that build incrementally on the palate, this monumental effort is more structured than their outstanding 2003. It may be the finest wine produced at this estate since the 1982 and 1961 Ducrus. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050

Tasting note


The 2005 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is a testament to the grandeur of Saint-Julien wines. With a dense purple hue, this wine exudes a bouquet of spring flowers, raspberries, blueberries, and creme de cassis, underpinned by a graphite edge. Its full body carries massive layers of richness, with exceptionally high tannins and a robust structure that promises longevity. The palate unfolds with earthy notes of forest floor, tobacco leaf, cedar, and truffle, culminating in a spicy and sweet finish of fleshy black currants. This monumental wine, matured in new French oak barrels for 18 months, is a powerful expression of its prestigious terroir, located near the Gironde River estuary. Decant for two hours to fully appreciate its evolving complexities, and pair with robust dishes like roast lamb or Beef Wellington for an unforgettable dining experience.
