2006 Saint-Julien 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou's history goes back to the 18th century; more precisely to 1720. The Castle's name Beaucaillou (beautiful stones) refers to gorgeous, large rocks on the terroir. The 2006 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot.

This rich and elegant vintage from Saint-Julien reveals super purple red hue. The deep, strong nose exudes fresh grapes. The palate offers silky and full attack, followed by lush mid-palate and great tension, with rich fresh fruit flavours. Unusually refined tannins carry the long and powerful finish.

Parker : 94 / 100
Wine Spectator : 95 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the chÃóteau, the 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou has a precocious bouquet for the vintage: opulent ripe dark cherry, red plum and cassis fruit, mint and hints of vanilla pod. It is very well defined and very sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet opening, plenty of dark cherry and blackberry, Hoisin, a touch of cedar and again mint. There is fine depth here, surprisingly young with a dense, slightly tarry finish that suggests another 2-3 years will be appropriate.
