The beautiful, deep violet hued Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou 2010 is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Intense black fruits, spice touches, round and scrumptious attack: Ducru-Beaucaillou 2010 is highly structured, with creamy, sophisticated tannins: a consistently dynamic and persistent Saint-Julien.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
With loads of minerality, a terrific opaque purple color, and slightly more structure and tannin than either Poyferre or St.-Pierre (and thatâÇÖs saying something), this is a blockbuster, fabulous Ducru Beaucaillou that should be at its best a good decade from now and last 40-50 years. The proprietor is not alone in thinking this is the finest Ducru Beaucaillou since the 1961. The classic wet rock, creme de cassis, subtle oak and gravelly stoniness of the vineyard come through in this spectacular, full-bodied, gorgeously pure and intense effort. This is wine for the ages that should be forgotten for at least a decade.
