Tasting Notes Ducru Beaucaillou 2006

95

Subtle aromas of currants, blueberries and minerals. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a fine, fine finish. I love the texture to this wine, and it's just starting to show you the true quality it has. Start drinking. One of the top wines of this vintage. Better in 2016.

In a mini-vertical poured by Bruno Borie ('76, '86, '96 and '06) it is the youngest that I found to be the best wine. It simply has a heightened level of precision and clarity on the nose, that sense of crushed stone behind those layers of pure blackcurrant, cedar and graphite (almost like a Pauillac!) The palate is medium-bodied with great precision, a tensile Ducru Beaucaillou that shimmers all the way to the finish. This is a superb Ducru! Tasted November 2011.

This classic, backward, tannic St.-Julien is made in the style of the 1996 and 1986. The 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou possesses a dense purple color along with a sweet perfume of graphite, black raspberries, cassis, licorice, and subtle toasty oak. Despite their prominent place in the wine's structure, the sweetness of the tannins and the full-bodied, muscular style suggest exceptional patience will be required. This is a big, substantial, meaty, masculine wine built for considerable longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.
