"Ducru-Beaucaillou experienced an uncharacteristically shaky period between 1986 and 1990. The winemaking did not suffer, but the inconsistency from bottle to bottle (too many wines exhibited a musty, wet cardboard-like aroma), is history. The construction of a new cellar and replacement of every barrel has guaranteed the conditions necessary to produce trouble free wines. Ducru is on a roll, with fine efforts over recent vintages, including an exceptional 1994, spectacular 1995, and what looks to be an equally profound, super-concentrated 1996. Spicy red and blackcurrant aromas compete with peppery, cedary notes. Sweet, rich, ripe fruit hits the palate in a medium-bodied, soft, pretty style. A tannic finish does not detract from the precocious, flattering personality of this elegant, herbaceous but delicious, medium-bodied, supple Ducru-Beaucaillou. A very good effort for the vintage, it should be drunk over the next 7-10 years." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Feb 27, 1997)
