2006 Ducluzeau, Listrac

SKU #1070848 Decanter

 Nice nose of briary fruit, easy supple wine, quite forward. 2009-14.  (6/2007)

Jancis Robinson

 With 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this property belongs to Bruno Borie of Ducru Beaucaillou. Rather simple red fruits plus florality on the nose. Bit dry on the end and pretty light but less rustic than some Listracs. Slightly dry and inky on the finish but a worthy attempt. Drink 2010-2016.  (4/2007)

K&L Notes

This little known estate is owned by the Borie family of Ducru fame and is the home of Madame Borie, wife of the late Jean Borie and mother of Bruno Borie of Ducru Beaucaillou. This is Listrac with finesse and charm and toasty oak nuances. Delicious and ready to drink tonight!

I don't remember other Ducluzeau's being this elegant. The nose was filled with ripe red fruit which carried through on the palate with lots of spice. The acidity is still evident so the red fruit is just a bit tart with lots more spice and mineral showing on the finish.

From the Borie stable of wines. This is elegant Listrac, if you can imagine that. Red currant aromas--very expressive--with spicy nuances. Red berry flavors and gobs of spice on the palate. Rounded tannins. Delicious now and for five years. Try with duck breast and currant sauce.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
