Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.6

Compared to the Second Wine, the 2018 Ducru-Beaucaillou clearly displays more new oak on the nose, which is to be expected given that it was entirely aged in new wood. The bouquet is very intense, particularly after 3–4 hours of opening (like many 2018s), offering copious scents of blackberries, blueberry, mint and violet, all while maintaining excellent delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that render the texture velvety-smooth and polished. There is a surfeit of exceedingly pure black fruits laced with cedar and mint bound up in this Saint-Julien. The finish is serene but very persistent. This will be a seductive and sophisticated Ducru-Beaucaillou that deserves several years in bottle. (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2021)

Ruby, rich fruit aromas of red berries and floral spices, known as “little sister” of the Evenstad Reserve. The palate shows cherry and strawberry with cacso, oak & cola.

What a wine. Nose is a complex lemon/lime medley with sweet lemons and limes. Unreal mineral, lanolin note. So pure and clean. Flowers. Elite grass. Awesome minerality. Pure and clean. Palate is chewy, dense, structured and has next level elite elegance. Sappy and pure. Amazing depth. Grassy yet so serene and zen. What an exciting wine! Incredible freshness and acids and playfulness. Super serious and so drinkable. Luscious. Endless finish. — 2 months ago

Evenstad Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Fruit, earth, oak, and crushed herbs. Felt the heating in my throat for a bit after drinking it. Not a bad thing. Good Willamette Pinot that I would enjoy again but the price point is a bit high. — 8 days ago

Young but stunning. Nose is slightly woody (still!) with unreal deep black cherry fruit and mega violets. Glorious spice and minerals. Charcoal, char, and also some cocoa. The wood is sweet and complementary. But man it takes years to shed. Palate has much less if any wood and lovely sweetness, freshness and also almost a softened. Explosive fruit, our toy and density, but elegant and serene. So long and delicate but really needs 5 years. — 2 months ago
