Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou 2002

90 points

Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Quite classic but not showing its best I think. This (7 years old) seems to be a difficult time for the better 2002s. The fruit is now a bit subdued and lean which points up the greeness of the vintage. In a few years this will be a far less detracting characteristic.

One thought on “Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou 2002

  1. A great winery indeed with a storied history. 2002 was a lean and somewhat off vintage in Bordeaux like you said but I would have expected better from such a great Chateau. 90 points is a pretty good score though and if I could pick up a bottle at a fair price it might be worth a shot. Thanks for the savvy review! Cheers!
