International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($165) Bright red-ruby. Deep, vibrant aromas of currant, sour cherry, graphite, cedar and licorice. Sappy, suave and energetic, with terrific verve and framing acidity to the tightly wound flavors of dark cherry, currant, spices and minerals. Wonderfully primary and penetrating Saint-Julien, almost painfully intense yet weightless. Finishes very long and fine, with terrific definition. An infant today, with a long life ahead of it.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 181

This classic, backward, tannic St.-Julien is made in the style of the 1996 and 1986. The 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou possesses a dense purple color along with a sweet perfume of graphite, black raspberries, cassis, licorice, and subtle toasty oak. Despite their prominent place in the wine's structure, the sweetness of the tannins and the full-bodied, muscular style suggest exceptional patience will be required. This is a big, substantial, meaty, masculine wine built for considerable longevity.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Very perfumed and beautiful, showing blackberry and raspberry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Deep and complex. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Excellent for the vintage. Best after 2015. 10,500 cases made

Miguel L Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 02/11/2010 Drink Dates: 2018-2038

Premieur purchase. Opened 7 hours, double decanted. Dark, reflective and pooling color. Beautiful nose that was present from the moment the cork was pulled. Blue berry, vanilla cream and pine forest. Obviously young, tannic, but quite full-bodied, with tremendous promise, power and potential. Enjoyable for a young wine, but it can and will be so much more later. All the stuffing needed to kick butt for decades -- give it at least 8 more years. Beautiful Ducru, and one of the best 2006 Bordeaux.
