About

93

Effectively a wine with its own dedicated portion of the Ducru Beaucaillou vineyard, this is structured and firm. It's concentrated with dark plum fruits and full of powerful tannins that go right through from start to finish. It certainly needs to age, so don't drink before 2022.

92 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

A solid second wine with black licorice and blackberry and mineral character. Sliced Chinese mushrooms. Full body, firm tannins and a soft and sexy texture. Better in 2018.
