About Our Ratings

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1986 Cru Classe, St. Julien
The celebrated Classified Growth from St. Julien that Robert Parker has called the "Lafite Rothschild of St.-Julien." Owned by the famous Borie family who own several of the finest properties in the Medoc. This wine is true rarity, a wine that would ordinarily only be attainable at auction. Sourced from the Chateau cellars with three decades of bottle age, it's a Classified Bordeaux that's offering full expression and nuance. Michael Broadbent in 1990 gave it Four Stars and wrote "Very deep, intense, immature; forthcoming nose, good fruit and depth though with a touch of stalkiness; unusually sweet, respectable weight, fruit, flavor, extract, tannin and acidity. Impressive." Wine Spectator scored it 95 saying "A monster in its infancy. Almost black in color, with intense cassis, herb and mint aromas and superrich, dense cassis and licorice flavors. May last forever." and The Asian Palate, Jeannie Cho Lee at a tasting in 2012 scored it 94 points saying "A gorgeous Ducru-Beaucaillou at its peak. Love the bottled aged flavours of violets, mushrooms, leather and dark spices. Tannins are silky and the flavors subtle yet persistent. Beautiful wine." Extremely Limited!!!
