"The style of Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of elegance combined with the balance and fruit character one expects from St-Julien. The Léovilles can be more powerfully structured, and Gruaud-Larose occasionally richer, but Ducru-Beaucaillou leads with its finesse and length and freshness on the finish.

"These are wines that are generally slow to develop, needing a good ten years before all components are in tune..."

— James Lawther MW

Notes and Reviews

James Suckling (93)

Dark berries, iron, and hints of rust with some iodine. Full bodied, round and juicy with a solid backbone of tannins and focus. This is the second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Polished. Drink in 2021.
