Given a perfect 100 out of 100 by Robert Parker, this wine is being called one of the 'blockbusters' of the vintage - Its hugely powerful full-bodied texture, along side intense cassis and bramble flavours, followed by wonderfully full and rich tannins means this is going to mature and improve for decades.

The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000 - It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009 - A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake - Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 years of cellaring and last for 40-50 years - Magnificent!

The wines from Saint Julien are very similar to those from Pauillac, although generally better priced as their reputation is not as high - It is home to the most second growths of any of the left bank communes, and second only to Pauillac in the total number of classed growths.
