James Suckling – 99/100
Really perfumed and complex with blackberries, blackcurrants and flowers. Gorgeous cabernet sauvignon character. Full-bodied with really fine, polished tannins. Superb length and intensity. Very compact and seamless. Ethereal. Just goes on and on.
Jeb Dunnuck – 97-99/100
A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, brought up in new oak, the 2020 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou offers a gorgeously pure nose of crème de cassis, graphite, crushed stone, toasty oak, and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, it reminds me of a hypothetical mix of the 2010 and 2016, offering serious concentration paired with a gorgeous sense of precision and purity. It’s going to take a decade of cellaring to hit the early stages of maturity (it will have some up-front appeal if you’re interested) yet evolve for 50 years or more. Along with the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, it might be the wine of the vintage from the Médoc.
Decanter – 98/100
An amazing Ducru, one of the wines of the vintage. Hugely persistent, chiselled and precise, yet succulent in its berry and cassis fruit character. The slate and pencil lead finish slows things down and grabs hold of you, I love the push-and-pull of the tannins. Always a confident and well-finessed wine, really flexing its muscles in 2020. 100% new oak barrels.
Robert Parker – 97/100
The 2020 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, aging for approximately 18 months in 100% new barriques. It has a pH of 3.83, 13.5% alcohol and an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 90. Opaque purple-black colored, the nose slowly unfurls to reveal tantalizing scents of crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and boysenberries, leading to suggestions of chocolate mint, star anise, red roses and unsmoked cigars with a waft of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate delivers impactful, muscular black fruits with a firm frame of ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant.

Limited & Exclusive

Because the demand for bottles from these exclusive wineries is so great, allocations are offered per country and importer in very limited quantities per reference / producer. Depending on the availability from Bordeaux, this means that some references may or may not be available, or only in very small volumes. This results in the sale of these wines often going very quickly.

Wine Wizz will be happy to keep you informed by email and text as soon as a wine becomes available. Simply register for our alerts via the relevant product page!

Buying En Primeurs

The Primeurs campaign in Bordeaux, also called En-Primeur, is a way to buy the most sought after wines and vintages while they are still in barrels. This gives customers the opportunity to invest in a certain exclusive wine before it is bottled and offered to the market. This allows customers to guarantee the purchase of a specific wine at a discount on the “future” price.

Payment (ex-VAT and delivery costs) and ordering takes place approximately 18 to 24 months before the wine is bottled and delivered. Before delivery to the customer, the VAT and delivery costs will be charged.

All our En-Primeur wines are delivered ex-Chateau, guaranteed for authenticity!
