2010 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/5/2015 - Loren Sonkin wrote: 95 points

Fourth of July at Wes & Cassandra's (Ravenna): This had been opened for a bit when I got there. Obviously young and there is a lot of room for improvement. Cassis, some leather, blueberries, spice and fresh cut lumber on the nose. Very pretty and young. Lovely, lush texture. The palate is very tight but is delicious right now. Cassis and spice mixed with slight oak in the glass. Deep and bottomless. Lovely balance. Long finish. In twenty years, this may merit a close to perfect score. Wonderful today though with some air.

BYO at Goosefoot (Chicago): Much, much more approachable than the 86 Margaux. Sweeter round fruit, round and silky. Nice right now but will hold.

BYO at Goosefoot (Chicago): Really enjoyed the dark fruit, asphalt and herbal notes of this bottle tonight against the rest of the lineup. Lovely texture.

Quite full and rich, but with a slightly hard and dry finish; the fruit is perhaps a little burnt, but it is quite concentrated. May improve over the next few years, but for now lacks balance.

Great funk on the nose with black cherry, toffee, mocha, earth notes, and truffles. Hints of lapsang souchong as well. Palate less complex than the nose although the dark fruit, white pepper, and slight funky tang were all there. Not quite the equal of a bottle I had earlier in the year.

Young nose with black and red cherry, black pepper, and earth. These notes echo on the palate along with licorice. Vibrant and with a strong finish, this is an excellent wine by any standard if stored properly. The biggest surprise of the evening. Paired very well with wagyu.

Still holding up with lovely aromas of cedar and red fruits. Tannins are fully resolved. A lovely mature claret.

6/28/2015 - tinybubbles Likes this wine: 95 points

A slightly different expression than the bottle earlier in the month. On the nose, damp dark earth, tar, black cherry, blackberry, white pepper, fresh tobacco, and cinnamon on the back with air time. Forest floor, sanded cedar and sandalwood, dry earth and light tar on the backpalate. A rich palate with a savory/sweet balance that progresses on schedule and without abrupt handoffs. Long finish with savory dark spice on the back. 1 hour decant

Lunch au QG
Nez un peu caramel, l'élevage bien présent. La bouche est ronde et la texture belle, l'aromatique encore fermée. Un Las Cases que j'ai chaque fois trouvé un peu trop sur l'élevage, sans doute trop jeune. 91 (+?)

I am clearly more positive about this wine than others. I find it surprising that some people think it lacks fruit. Yes it is young but the fruit and structure scream out. It is drinking very well now but I suspect is at least five years off its peak.

PnP. Good bottle, aromatic and clean just lack bit of intensity on the nose. Sweet and smooth on the attack. Vibrant acidity but not excessive. Firm mid-palate with plenty of tannins around. multi-layered and long finish with touch of warmth at backend. Some tertiary notes but still mainly primary. More open than previous bottle about 7 months ago. Good and approachable now but I would rather wait for another few years, this is going to be a long distance runner, will likely to last another 15 to 20 years. 93-95 pts (A)

Smooth as silk. Purchased early release. Last bottle opened was some 5 years ago.
Wow. How nicely did it evolve! Dark cherry with red brick edges, refined nose. Some blueberries, mineral tones, subtles aromas. Nice length. Very pleasing. I love it.

Second vin du Château Gloria, ce vin de Bordeaux est produit à partir des plus jeunes vignes de la propriété. Typique de l’appellation, ce rouge sec est caractérisé par son nez complexe de prune, de réglisse, cassis et de grain de café. Avec l’âge il est aussi un peu plus animal avec une touche de cuir. La bouche est harmonieuse avec ses fruits un peu confiturés et ses saveurs boisées affichant une agréable souplesse.

Tobacco, cedar wood, blackberries and fresh herbs create the nose. On the palate, the wine delivers a classic blast of fresh, concentrated, cassis, salty, mineral driven tannins and a chewy, long, cassis filled finish. This will be better with a decade of age.

Wet earth, cedar and tobacco on the nose, with present, but manageable tannins and fresh cassis in the finish. Give this a few years to develop even more charm.
