Critic reviews
"The 2023 Le Petit Ducru de Ducru Beaucaillou has a seductive bouquet with pure red fruit, incense and light cedar scents, just a slight minty element emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit and fine structure. There’s a dash of black pepper and more fruit concentration on the finish than the Madame de Beaucaillou. Very promising."
Neal Martin, April 2024, Vinous.com

"The 2023 Le Petit Ducru de Ducru-Beaucaillou is packed with blackberry, chocolate, licorice, cloves and menthol. A wine of substance and textural richness, Le Petit Ducru shows the more opulent side of a year marked with late-season heat, also revealing some stylistic choices by way of its bombastic personality. This Saint-Julien is certainly not shy."
Antonio Galloni, April 2024, Vinous.com

"Plush and fragrant opening to Le Petit Ducru in this vintage, the deep black pepper, capsicum and turmeric spice that is a signature of the vintage, with gorgeous fresh slate and graphite set against cassis fruits. 30% new oak for ageing."
Jane Anson, April 2024, JaneAnson.com

"The density here is very pretty with blackcurrant and lead pencil. Graphite, too. Medium-bodied, balanced and savory. Fine and perfumed. Solid finish. 72% merlot, 24% cabernet sauvignon and 4% petit verdot."
