Bordeaux 2023: Ducru Beaucaillou

15 May 2024

Contemporary Ducru

The 2023 Ducru Beaucaillou will delight fans of Bruno Borie’s wines. This is a big, impressive, yet manicured wine, true to the recent house style. There’s a vertical plushness to the opulent core of dark fruit. It’s lavish and stylish, restrained by a certain Cabernet classicism.

As ever, selection is rigorous in the pursuit of perfection, so production is limited to 8000 cases. We are pleased to offer the Grand Vin at £744/6, a 33.5% discount on last year’s release, and the excellent Croix de Beaucaillou at £182/6 (a 16% reduction).

“The 2023 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a heady, sumptuous Saint-Julien. The aromatics alone are captivating. Truffle, rose petal, blood orange, pomegranate, spice and menthol build in a creamy, lavish Ducru. The 2023 is a classic Bruno Borie wine that emphasizes textural opulence. Time in the glass brings out gorgeous floral and spice-driven top notes. The balance of opulence and vibrancy is compelling.” - 95-97/100, Antonio Galloni,

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2023 Ducru-Beaucaillou opens with classic great Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, mulberries, and ripe plums leading to a perfume of lilacs, lavender, and pencil shavings with a touch of cardamom. The light to medium-bodied palate is very tightly wound and so, so elegant, with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and wonderful tension giving definition to the black and red berry layers, finishing long and fragrant. This is more structured than most Médoc wines this year and very impressive. The blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, with pH 3.70 and TPI 89.” - 95-97+/100, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent
