International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($63-$85) Deep ruby-red. Reticent nose hints at violet, menthol and spicy oak. Sweet and lush on entry, then broad and classically dry in the middle, with slightly edgy acidity currently dominating the wine's precise berry and licorice flavors. Finishes with serious, broad tannins that reach the incisors. This is long but the 2006 is longer.

One can't say enough about the efforts Bruno Borie is pouring into this wonderful estate that I have often called the "Lafite Rothschild of St.-Julien." An undeniable success, the 2004 Ducru boasts sweet aromas of creme de cassis, spring flowers, pain grille, licorice, and road tar. This pure, medium-bodied wine possesses moderately high tannin, superb concentration, good sweetness, and low acidity. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberry and currant. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is a Ducru with reserve and lots of finesse. 15,000 cases made.

This wine was surprising and certainly disappointing. Although it was seemingly made from ripe fruit and certainly a wonderful terroir, the texture was flaccid and almost too milky & creamy, as if the malolactic was poorly managed. Even the blackberry jam aromas and flavors were simply overwhelmed by the array of cloying milk chocolate mess and in desperate need of verve and complexity. The promising cedar edge that struck me on the finish lead me to believe that this sample was either not representative, or simply in a disjointed evolutionary stage. I hesitate to assess.
