    May 6, 2019 - Glorious; clean, deep, pure wine with loads of stony minerality and blackcurrant. Rich and full but still so very elegant and focused. There is so much sculpted, classical beauty here.

    December 1, 2018 - 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot.

    Appealing and complex aromas with darker red berries, light florality, blackcurrant, blackberries and sweet pepper tobacco.

    Lovely full-bodied wine that has an electrical touch where the nerves really get a kick. Fantastic red currant fruit, gorgeous graphite / saltiness, great licorice, some wood and light mokka beans. A little bit of alcohol that is currently drawing a little. Beautifully integrated tannins are providing a great balance. Very long finish on this brilliant wine.

    November 16, 2018 - Too young to judge at this point, but clearly shows a lot of restraint in a big fruit forward vintage. Maybe designed for the long-haul, but this is not a big, ripe wine, i.e., this is not 2004, 2005, 2009, 2010, 2014, to name a few vintages. The exotic, decadent side of Ducru is lurking somewhere I suspect--just not showing right now in this med-bodied, closed-down version.

    November 9, 2018 - HDH Bordeaux Auction; 11/9/2018-11/10/2018 (Chicago, IL): This wine pretty much goes all the way up to the boundary of my tolerance of jammy, young Bordeaux, but for all it's worth it's not excessively over the top. Clearly shows some damp earth, a fair bit of oak, and some silky fruit on the nose. Quite savoury, with a really nice briny quality, as well as a moderate amount of vanilla. Tannins are silky, and the oak use well-handled here. Nice fruit, with a good vein of acidity too. Should be excellent with time, not exactly great drinking now.

    October 17, 2018 - The 2015 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. It begins with absolutely stunning aromatics dark cherries and crème de cassis along with graphite, spring florals, minerals and tobacco which soar from the glass. On the palate this is every bit as striking, as it displays outstanding overall depth an concentration, with a beautiful velvety texture and tremendous length on the finish. Overll, this is an absolutely beautifully made wine, which will certainly have a long, graceful evolution ahead.
