Tasting Notes Ducru Beaucaillou 2004

93

One can't say enough about the efforts Bruno Borie is pouring into this wonderful estate that I have often called the 'Lafite Rothschild of St.-Julien.' An undeniable success, the 2004 Ducru boasts sweet aromas of creme de cassis, spring flowers, pain grille, licorice, and road tar. This pure, medium-bodied wine possesses moderately high tannin, superb concentration, good sweetness, and low acidity. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years. Also tasted: 2004 Croix de Beaucaillou (88; $25.00)

This Ducru is such a harmonious wine, with cedar, berry and truffle character. It's full-bodied with gorgeous tannins and a pretty finish. Drink now.

Tasted at Farr's Ducru-Beaucaillou dinner at the Ledbury. The 2004 is developing a very satisfying, expressive bouquet with raspberry, limestone, bay leaf and a touch of crushed stone, all with fine delineation and poise. The palate is medium-bodied and showing more precision and delineation than previous bottles with an almost sorbet-like freshness. There is a saline tincture towards the finish that has some unresolved tannins, therefore I would cellar this for 5-6 more years. Tasted October 2010.
