Jancis Robinson MW 17.5/20Tasted blind. Minty top note. Lots of beef. Dry tannins but hugely intense. Lots going on here. Quite a cocktail of activity. Very dry and savoury and minerally. Almost painfully austere on the end!Drink 2019-2040

Robert 
Parker 97The 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 outstanding2003. It may be the finest wine produced at this estate since the 1982 and 1961 Ducrus. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050.
