Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

...blackberries, smoke, a touch of dried herbs and pine needles with stunning delineation and vibrancy. The palate is full-bodied with outstanding mineralite and a sense of symmetry that is beyond both the very impressive 1995 and 1996... eRobertParker.com

By far the best showing I’ve seen from this 2000. Astonishing purity of fruit, compelling aromatics and a long, full, silky finish. Graphite, violet, rich plum tobacco. Just loved every single thing about it.

I’m a sucker for Ducru. LKG’s Birthday - sometimes we drink Bordeaux.

A fantastic showing and layered complexity from this excellent vintage, just entering the beginning of its ideal drinking window. Rich blackberry and currants, cedar, leather and hints of cocoa and dried herbs with a palate coating texture. The finish is long and concentrated. Just going to get better.

Crimson with a tawny edge. An initial woody mushroom note from the Decanter. Aromas of Cedar chest of drawers and Dust with integrated savoury Plum. The nose and palate show a total balance of fruit, oak and tannin which just says gorgeous mature claret. An intoxicating perfume even after over an hour in the Decanter reflecting the excellent 2000 vintage. Silky. One of those totally balanced Bordeaux where descriptors are superfluous. A leathery note after a few hours. Loved this Ducru.
