Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the top Bordeaux of the stellar 2016 vintage - limited.

99 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the gems in the vintage will be the 2018 Château Léoville Poyferré which is a powerful incredibly sexy wine based on 64% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot representing just 45% of the total production. In the same ballpark as the 2000 2005 2009 and 2010 its deep purple color is followed by a rich opulent bouquet of sweet black and blue fruits tobacco and graphite. Both intellectually and hedonistically satisfying it fills the mouth with fruit has remarkable purity and precision for such a powerful wine sweet tannins and a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. It's similar in character to the 2009 and will keep for three decades or more. This wine checks in at 14.4% alcohol with a pH of 3.7 and a massive (one of the highest in the vintage) IPT value of 90. Tasted twice.”

98 Points James Suckling: “This is so powerful and dense with amazing tannin quality that reminds me of dense clouds because they are agile and light. Multilayered. Extremely long too. Punchy! One of the best wines I have ever had from here."

98 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Ducru-Beaucaillou features a wonderfully savory, earthy/meaty nose, delivering well-defined notes of tapenade, truffles, charcuterie and sautéed herbs over crème de cassis, wild blueberries and kirsch with wafts of pencil lead and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with the taut, muscular fruit well framed by very firm yet very ripe and finely grained tannins, offering a quiet intensity of red fruit and mineral sparks and finishing with epic length.
