Product description

#96 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2006 Ducru-Beaucaillou exhibits the same analytical richness as its 2005 or 2003 counterpart. While on a par with those top-quality vintages, it boasts an extraordinary personality: endowed with generous fruit and a superb freshness, presenting an elegant albeit solid structure. Varietal Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, 25% Merlot

95 Points - Wine Spectator

Very aromatic and beautiful, showing blackberry and raspberry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Deep and complex. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Excellent for the vintage. Best after 2015.

95 Points - Decanter

This is not quite as silky smooth and rich as the 2005, yet it's full of promise. It feels young, with tannins still pulsating around the dark berry fruits, joined by eucalyptus and cigar box notes through the finish. With a precise depth of flavour, it's a classically framed St Julien, full of dark cheer, a winter wine for nights by the fire with good food and good friends.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

Deep garnet in colour, the 2006 Ducru-Beaucaillou delivers expressive Black Forest cake, blackcurrant cordial and chocolate box scents with touches of fertile loam, espresso, Marmite toast and black olives. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with vibrant fruit expression and a firm, grainy texture, finishing with a lively lift.
