Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2013 Ducru Beaucaillou has an open and generous bouquet that deserves applause considering the growing season. Dark berry fruit, tar and undergrowth scents, even after a couple of years you could considering opening a bottle. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, silky smooth and dare I say, almost Burgundy-like towards the finish that shows no signs of any greenness. Considering the challenges of the vintage, Bruno Borie should consider this a success. I would drink this over the next decade. Tasted December 2016.
