Ducru Beaucaillou 2020 (3L)

SKU: 3360800597810519


97-99 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com: A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, brought up in new oak, the 2020 Chteau Ducru-Beaucaillou offers a gorgeously pure nose of crme de cassis, graphite, crushed stone, toasty oak, and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, it reminds me of a hypothetical mix of the 2010 and 2016, offering serious concentration paired with a gorgeous sense of precision and purity. It’s going to take a decade of cellaring to hit the early stages of maturity (it will have some up-front appeal if you’re interested) yet evolve for 50 years or more. Along with the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, it might be the wine of the vintage from the Mdoc. 05/21
