Bordeaux 2020: Ducru Beaucaillou and Leoville Poyferre
24 June 2021

It has certainly been a year for marking anniversaries. There have already been numerous commemorative bottles from 2020, and we have another two today bringing out the bling to mark special occasions! Bruno was not going to miss the opportunity to produce something special to observe the 300th vintage for Ducru Beaucaillou. “Chiselled” seemed to be the buzz word used by critics, and it cropped up in our notes too. This is a very serious, cerebral Ducru, which will appeal to classicists as much as those who admire the luxuriant, seductive style of recent years. It’s a real nod back to the past, if not quite as far back as 1720… We love the cool, dark Cabernet style; the wonderful, gentle perfume and graceful lines. What a fine way to mark the triple century. The Cuvelier Family is also celebrating a landmark: 100 years at Leoville Poyferre. Didier’s cousin Sara Lecomte Cuvelier has settled in and has already produced some impressive wines. The 2020 is another grand-scale, yet intricate St Julien with a massive future ahead. Neal Martin describes it as “Easily one of the classiest offerings from this Saint-Julien in recent years”. The bottle will be draped in gold to mark the occasion.    Read More
