Product Overview

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a wine with big tannins and big fruit. You can feel the wood rather than taste it, certainly smell it initially before the black currant aromas kick in. Impressive and sumptuous, it has a solid density that layers with the smoky character of the fruit and wood. Rich and complex, it needs to age. Drink from 2025." -RV, 5/1/15

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Offers an almost lavish feel, with layers of warmed fig, blackberry paste and raspberry coulis lined with ganache, anise and fruitcake flavors. A rock-solid graphite note lines the finish, showing just the slightest twinge of the vintage's austerity. A very admirable effort. Best from 2018 through 2027." -JM, 3/31/15

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Ducru-Beaucaillou offers up expressive, exuberant scents of warm kirsch, black raspberries and wild blueberries with hints of sassafras, cedar chest, pencil lead and dried mint plus a waft of dried leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate has lovely freshness and a fair bit of chew, complementing the youthful black and red fruit layers, finishing on a lingering earthy note." -LPB, 8/13/20

92 Points - Vinous
"The 2012 Ducru-Beaucaillou has a well-defined and quite concentrated bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and cedar aromas that open nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine balance and grip. This is a well-proportioned Saint-Julien with just the right amount of bitterness that lends an edginess to the finish. Very fine. Tasted blind at the Southwold Ten-Year On tasting." -NM, Feb/2022
