Reviews of Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2005
Tasting: comments from the cellar master (21 March 2006):
The colour is a deep, garnet red. The nose encountered on the attack; is powerful and tight, truly complex. In the mouth, the wine overruns the palate. The sensual opening spreads out generously on a big wine with a strong tannic structure marked by "finesse" and harmony. It draws out on an extremely long finish. It seems to be a great Ducru, able to reach great heights!
With only 10,000 cases produced, volumes of the Premier Vin are markedly behind 2004 and even 2003 levels, which were already quite low.
The final is composed of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot.
