This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Ducru-Beaucaillou tasting

Tasting of Ducru-Beaucaillou's wines at Classified, organized by Altaya and hosted by Bruno Borie.

2006 Château Lalande-Borie - very young and fresh.

2005 Château Lalande-Borie - naturally a more powerful wine than the 2006.

2006 La Croix de Beaucaillou - clearly more concentrated than the Lalande-Borie.

2000 La Croix de Beaucaillou - a beautiful ready to drink.

2002 Ducru-Beaucaillou - very grassy nose with smoke and notes of spice.

2006 Ducru-Beaucaillou - a very nice wine and easy to drink.

2004 Ducru-Beaucaillou

1996 Ducru-Beaucaillou - ripe and very ready to drink, with soft and round tannins. A beautiful wine that would only get better.

1995 Ducru-Beaucaillou - pretty tightly closed, and a far cry from its slightly younger sibling. As we saw from the Ducru vertical tasting 2 years ago, the crowd preferred the 1996 over this.
