2010 Ducru Beaucaillou Bordeaux Wine Polished & Powerful


2010 Ducru Beaucaillou 2010 Bordeaux Wine review, tasting notes and ratings along with ratings and reviews for 2010  Croix de Beaucaillou and 2010 Lalande  Borie.

2010 Ducru Beaucaillou Produced from a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the wine reached 13.95% alcohol. Inky purple in color, cassis, truffle, cedar, spice, oak, mocha and fennel aromas are found with little coaxing.  Polished, powerful, long, fresh, pure and clean, the layers of chocolate covered black cherries resonate in the finish. This regal wine remains on your palate for close to 50 seconds.  The wine will be aged in 95% new oak for 18 months.  97-98 Pts

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. 2010 marks the debut for new label promoting the estates efforts to market this brand as a unique wine, and not a second label of Ducru Beaucaillou as the wine emanates from a different terroir than the Grand Vin.  Cassis, plums and anise scents lead to a wine that offers juicy ripe plums and hints of coca. Fresh, clean and polished, this is a strong effort for Croix de Beaucaillou.  The wine is going to be aged in 60% new oak for about 12 months.   91-93 Pts

2010 Lalande Borie – Produced from a vineyard purchased from Lagrange in the 70’s, this soft, pleasant, easy to like and appreciate, blackberry and black cherry filled wine should offer pleasure on release.  87-89 Pts
