James Suckling 96 Points

Wonderful rose and currant aromas with hints of mint. It’s full-bodied yet very finely textured, with good fruit concentration and length. Continuing to improve in the bottle.

Wine Spectator 95 Points

Fantastic aromas of blackberries, wild berries and minerals. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied and very tight, with big, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Superb. A muscular Ducru. Best after 2010. 17,500 cases made.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points

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.

The color is very concentrated in tones of purple violet. The nose is impressive by its complexity and intensity: charming notes of black current, red fruits, enhanced by a slight touch of vanilla and flowers.

In the mouth, the attack is rich with silky and elegant tannins. The finish is long and fruity. The Ducru Beaucaillou 2000 is racy and elegant. It is a rich, full-bodied and complex wine with a wonderful finesse of the fruit.

  Pour this alongside a dishes such as rosemary lamb, braised short-rib or enjoy this gem on its own.
