2013 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

SKU #1270835 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is real wine with a tasty and rich palate with chocolate, stone and berry. Medium to full body with refined tannins and a savory texture. A wine for pleasure. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and scorched earth blossom on the palate in a rich, resonant wine endowed with terrific depth and intensity for the year. The 2013 is delicate, sophisticated and polished to the core. A blast of red and blue tone fruits linger on the finish. The 2013 is aging in 100% new oak, all of which it has handled impeccably. At press time, Bruno Borie plans to stick to his regime of 18 months in barrel. Readers will find more obvious wines in 2013, but few that speak to this degree of pure finesse. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2013 Ducru Beaucaillou has an open and generous bouquet that deserves applause considering the growing season. Dark berry fruit, tar and undergrowth scents, even after a couple of years you could considering opening a bottle. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, silky smooth and dare I say, almost Burgundy-like towards the finish that shows no signs of any greenness. Considering the challenges of the vintage, Bruno Borie should consider this a success. I would drink this over the next decade. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very suave from the start, with ample singed spice and black tea aromas giving way to alluring plum coulis and blackberry confiture flavors. The finish is polished but hardly shy on depth, as a lingering alder edge adds spine. Sneakily long, this marks a deft handling of the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2028. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
