Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2000 Saint-Julien 12 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains twelve bottles Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2000 from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation.
Ducru Beaucaillou is a second growth, 75 hectare property whose vineyards are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.
'A stunning wine from Ducru Beaucaillou which showcases its great terroir, this elegant but substantial 2000 has a dense purple color that has hardly budged since it was first bottled. Displaying a floral note, with hints of boysenberries, black raspberries, black currants and a touch of background oak, the wine has superb concentration and density, but still has some substantial tannins that are not yet fully resolved. I originally predicted that it should be drinkable from 2010-2030, but I would modify that now to 2015-2035.95/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2010
