- 95-97 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "The 2020 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, aging for approximately 18 months in 100% new barriques. It has a pH of 3.83, 13.5% alcohol and an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 90. Opaque purple-black colored, the nose slowly unfurls to reveal tantalizing scents of crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and boysenberries, leading to suggestions of chocolate mint, star anise, red roses and unsmoked cigars with a waft of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate delivers impactful, muscular black fruits with a firm frame of ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant."

- 96-98 Punkte FALSTAFF, Peter Moser: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Feine Gewürzanklänge nach Nelken, Zimt und Kardamom, florale Nuancen, dunkle Waldbeeren, ein Hauch von Lakritze, sehr vielschichtiges, einladendes Bukett. Saftig, komplex, feine Nuancen von Brombeeren, Blaubeeren und etwas Nougat, reife, seidige Tannine, besitzt große Länge und Frische, sicheres Reifepotenzial, wirkt leichtfüßig und ausgewogen. Ein klassischer Claret der Neuzeit."

- 98 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "An amazing Ducru, one of the wines of the vintage. Hugely persistent, chiselled and precise, yet succulent in its berry and cassis fruit character. The slate and pencil lead finish slows things down and grabs hold of you, I love the push-and-pull of the tannins. Always a confident and well-finessed wine, really flexing its muscles in 2020. 100% new oak barrels. 3.83pH. Drinking Window 2029 – 2045"

- 97-99 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, brought up in new oak, the 2020 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou offers a gorgeously pure nose of crème de cassis, graphite, crushed stone, toasty oak, and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, it reminds me of a hypothetical mix of the 2010 and 2016, offering serious concentration paired with a gorgeous sense of precision and purity. It's going to take a decade of cellaring to hit the early stages of maturity (it will have some up-front appeal if you're interested) yet evolve for 50 years or more. Along with the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, it might be the wine of the vintage from the Médoc."

- 98-99 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Really perfumed and complex with blackberries, blackcurrants and flowers. Gorgeous cabernet sauvignon character. Full-bodied with really fine, polished tannins. Superb length and intensity. Very compact and seamless. Ethereal. Just goes on and on."

- Notizen des Weinguts zum neuen Etikett: In celebration of its tercentenary, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou has reinvented its historic label. At once elegant and sophisticated, decisively modern and audaciously disruptive, the new design nonetheless maintains continuity with the estate’s history and centuries-old values, striking a magnificent balance between the classic and the contemporary in an expression of joy and liberty. Capturing the brilliance, perspectives, and energy of the 2020 vintage, the design is the result of a holistic approach to the aesthetics of the bottle and the wine within. A true aficionado of contemporary art, Bruno-Eugène Borie explains his affinities: “It was our conviction that the creation of this ephemeral label designed expressly for ChâteauDucru-Beaucaillou’s three hundredth vintage had to be seen as an event in and of itself. It was necessarily inspired by a kind of poetic rebirth of Ducru-Beaucaillou’s legendary label, which had remained unchanged since its creation by the Johnstons in 1870. This new design recalls major art movements and techniques of the twentieth century: abstract art, collage, destructured forms, and new realism.”
The playful yet deliberate design is reminiscent of lacerated works of art, and the triple collage of the Victorian tower from the château’s southern façade incarnates the estate’s three centuries of existence and the three generations of the Borie family to helm Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. Like a series of triptychs or ripple effects, they lend resonance to the dazzling illuminations of those inspired beings who have from one era to the next sublimated this most exceptional wine as they sought out myriad expressions of the spirit and celebrations of the ineffable.
Pure and modern, the tricentenary logotype appears in enameled orange characters on the bottle’s shoulder, just above the label. The upper part of the neck is sealed with wax embossed with the estate’s seal in its signature orange hue, a color that evokes Orient, Asia and the Palladian art forms that the Johnstons held dear. It is a design in which the present and the past come together in the pursuit of excellence, a feast for the eyes that is a fitting prelude to the delights of the precious nectar within."

- 19+ Punkte WEINWISSER: " pH 3.83, TPI 90, 13.5 %-vol, Ausbau 18 Monate in 100 % neuen Barriques. Vielschichtiges Bouquet mit frisch gepflückten schwarzen Johannisbeeren, Alpenheidelbeere und Lakritze, dahinter verführerisches Veilchenparfüm, Zedern und Holundergelee. Am konzentrierten Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, herrlicher Extraktfülle, dabei ungeheuer präzise, engmaschiges Tanningerüst, perfekt reif gelesen und den mächtigen Körper perfekt stützend. Im Finale ein Feuerwerk von blauen Beeren, dunklem Graphit und spürbarer Adstringenz. Erinnert an den mächtigen 2010er mit einer höheren Konzentration an Aromen und dichteren Tanninen! 300j. Jubiläum: «Forever Vigneron»!"

Notizen des Weinguts: Tasting notes by our cellar master (March 2021): Opaque colour with an explosion of rich black fruits, crushed gravel, exotic oak spices and a floral perfume. This wine possesses a tight structure with layered, silky tannins, great precision and breadth of flavours, underpinned by superb freshness. Very elegantly composed, with perfectly mastered power. Great finish, the flavours perfume the palate with endless persistence. To add to the glorious 2018 & 2019, Ducru Beaucaillou marks its 300th anniversary with the richest wine in its history. The warm climatic conditions suit it well, allowing Ducru Beaucaillou to assert with great depth its aristocratic elegance. The style of 2020 is reminiscent of the academic 2010 but with a higher concentration of flavours and greater density of anthocyanins and tannins, underlined with the Ducru’s trademark freshness, giving an exquisite, succulent texture. JULIENDucru Beaucaillou 2020 will age for 18 months in 100% new oak barrels. Certified French oak, naturally matured outdoors. Regular topping-up is carried out during the first six months of ageing. The wines are then racked by gravity every three months, with a total of seven rackings during ageing. Traditional fining performed in barrel with egg whites. Bottling is carried out in a sterile atmosphere under inert oenological gas. Only first-quality natural corks with a length of 54 mm are used. Our bottles are laser etched, engraved with Ducru Beaucaillou, and have holograms incorporated into the labels.
