Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru 2010

97–100
/100

Lobenberg: Schwarz, leicht violett-roter Rand. Wuchtige süße Schwarzfruchtnase. Schwarze Kirsche, Johannisbeere, Brombeere, etwas Holunder, schwarze Olive, würzige Erde. Tolle, etwas dramatische Nase. Intensiver, rassiger Mund. Komplett schwarz. Brombeere vor schwarzer Johannisbeere, schwarze Schokolade. Ganz tief würzig, feine Säure zieht sich durch. Fast ein Blockbuster. Ganz anders als Leoville Las Cases, viel mehr in die wuchtige Richtung gehend, dennoch nie müde, sondern beschwingt, weil die immense Säure die Massen von Tannin gut stabilisiert. Ein anderer Wein in diesem Jahr, der tendenziell mehr zum rechten Ufer gehört und in der Appellation dennoch zum Besten des Jahrgangs gehört. Eindrucksvoll und berauschend! 97-100/100

Suckling über: Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: The nose is phenomenal with perfect aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon with currant bush, blackberries and minerals. A pure expression of Cab. The palate is perfect with a full body, but has perfectly integrated tannins with a texture like the finest cashmere. It's strong but noble with perfect form and beauty. All in harmony. A fabulous wine that everyone who loves Bordeaux should have a bottle or case of. Better in 2020. 100/100

Parker über: Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru

-- Parker: With loads of minerality, a terrific opaque purple color, and slightly more structure and tannin than either Poyferre or St.-Pierre (and that’s saying something), this is a blockbuster, fabulous Ducru Beaucaillou that should be at its best a good decade from now and last 40-50 years. The proprietor is not alone in thinking this is the finest Ducru Beaucaillou since the 1961. The classic wet rock, creme de cassis, subtle oak and gravelly stoniness of the vineyard come through in this spectacular, full-bodied, gorgeously pure and intense effort. This is wine for the ages that should be forgotten for at least a decade. Proprietor Bruno Borie thinks this wine is as superb as their 2009. Slightly more structured and less flamboyant than its older sibling, it is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot from the very best parcels of the vineyard. This wine tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol but has a normal pH of 3.6, which is one of the characteristics of this vintage (high alcohol, normal pH), which thus accounts for the freshness and precision found in most 2010s. 98+/100

Decanter über: Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru

-- Decanter: There is tannin build up at this point in the vertical, but in the most enjoyable way - a clear indication of how much complexity there is in these wines and how densely knitted together they are, bedding down for the long term. This wine in particular has barely an end in sight, it just stretches out before you, confident in its fleshy texture and layers of expression. This is really at the top of what you hope from St Julien, confident and intense yet still with the balance and freshness of the appellation. It has great persistency and keeps hanging on, delivering flavour an inch at a time. Wonderful. 98/100
