International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($110-$150) Ruby-red. Sexy nose offers superripe currant, raspberry, graphite and coconut. Lush, very rich and fine-grained, with an almost confectionery sweetness and thickness for this St. Julien. Atypically powerful on the back end, but not hard. Bruno Borie took over direction of this property with the 2003 and immediately switched to a heavier bottle with a longer neck that could accommodate a 55-millimeter cork. A terrific showing-but I'd still give this wine another four or five years of aging.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 214

A hot, dry summer resulted in a tiny production of under 10,000 cases of 2003 Ducru Beaucaillou from yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. This beauty boasts a deep plum/ruby/purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge. Aromas of licorice, creme de cassis, incense and spring flowers are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine with loads of fruit and glycerin as well as a plush texture. It is just entering its plateau of maturity where it should remain for another 10-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Intense aromas of blackberry, currant and cherry. Full-bodied, with masses of big, velvety tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. A blockbuster. A classic big, juicy claret. 17,500 cases made.

Sultry garnet color. Pungent berry nose with a hint of tanned leather. Double decanted and allowed to open for a few hours. Silky, medium bodied and delightful. Tannins are still packing a decent punch. This will be a real beauty in years to come. I won't be cracking another until 2015+.

We had this as part of a Cabernet Sauvignon tasting on 10/3/09. It had a slightly reserved bouquet with tobacco, black currant, smoke, mineral and graphite aromas. The palate was smooth, balanced and very dry with black currant, blackberry, dirt, mineral, graphite and tobacco flavors. It was very earthy and absolutely terrific!
