Community Tasting Note

  • englishman's claret wrote: 93 points

    May 5, 2019 - 90 years of Ducru Beaucaillou: The 2000 Ducru Beaucaillou really needs a couple hours of air to show its best, so that's what I gave this. Very typical to the 00 DB, this shows an intense mineral, truffle, oaky nose around a blackberry base. Slightly diffuse on the palate. The 2000 vintage isn't my favorite as they are evolving faster than might have originally been thought and seem to become lighter rather than more profound with age, but one does get some strange looks throwing a vertical tasting without it - so, voila.
