Château Ducru Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

A nice Bordeaux but not sure - could maybe use a bit more time. Quite dark in the glass, lots of dark fruit on the nose and palate. Nice acid on the finish but surprisingly still quite tannic and closed. — 2 days ago

Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Took a while to sort itself out but once it opened up to the group it was quite nice. — 2 months ago

Le Haut Medoc de Branaire-Ducru

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

I liked this but it didn’t blow me away or anything. Black cherries and plumb. A bit of spice and tobacco. Oak. Smooth tannins. — 9 months ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

I continue to love this!

30 minute plus decant. Dark cherry color. Classic Bordeaux nose filled with earth, smoke, and tar. Velvet on the palate with nice smoke. Could be deeper, but a tremendous wine!

La Croix Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

More fruity and spicy than 2008. This concentration should show good potential. At least 30 minutes, we should wait, then it became calm and balanced. 2014 @, And - JH, 190501-190605 — 6 months ago

La Croix de Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Nice minty nose of red fruit and baking spices. The flavors are still very youthful. Lots of dark fruit, plums, cherries. Tannins still present, but integrated. Very impressive for a 11 year old “second wine” — 6 months ago

Giacomo Fenocchio

Villero Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Had the 2009 Cannubi at an intimate tasting including a 1982 Ducru Beaucaillou!! Which was nearly perfect by the way. This Barolo while 9 years old was still ruby colored with structure and fresh tart berries. Also elegant and enchanting. Delicate earth, leather, herbs and olive tones. Perfect balance, and likely has at least another 9 years ahead of it. I’ve had the good fortune to have 2 sublime Nebbiolos within a week of each other. Aldo had 3 great highly touted Napa Cabs, but this Barolo eclipsed them with its subtlety and finesse — a year ago
