Medium brick colored, the 1999 Ducru-Beaucaillou needs a little swirling to release the tightly coiled notions of dried cherries, fruitcake and red currant jelly with emerging hints of balsamic, mincemeat pie, menthol, powdered chocolate and star anise. The medium to full-bodied palate is wonderfully expressive with seamless freshness lightly lifting a great core of youthful red and black fruits plus fine-grained tannins to support, finishing with lingering savory and spice layers. This well-structured spice-bomb still has a lot of years left! 2020 - 2038

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (Aug 2020 W), August 2020

Crafted with great skill, the 1999 Ducru is full-fleshed, supple, expressive and graceful, packed with the typical blueberry and blackberry fruits of the year, with liquorice stick and mineral flavours etched into the finish.
