RP: 94 ""A wine of extraordinary aromatic complexity and finesse this sweet effort possesses a dark ruby color with a pink rim. Once past the gloriously complex aromatics (blueberries black currants minerals and underbrush) the wine reveals terrific fruit intensity excellent harmony medium body sweet tannin and a long finish."""

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

From my cellar the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the most youthful of the Médoc crus classés today. Unwinding in the decanter and glass with a rich bouquet of blackcurrants licorice cigar wrapper and loamy soil it's full-bodied fleshy and muscular with a broad attack that segues into a deep core of fruit framed by ripe powdery tannins and succulent acids. It's an unusually big-boned rendition of this elegant-styled wine but it's no less compelling for that. Published: Dec 30 2022 "The harvest lasted 16 days from the 16th September" proprietor Bruno Borie mentioned about the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou. Medium brick colored it comes galloping out of the glass with bold expressive notes of Black Forest cake preserved plums and mincemeat pie with hints of cigar box star anise eucalyptus and espresso plus wafts of roasted nuts and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied generous and opulent the palate has beautifully ripe fine-grained tannins and tons of youthful fruit finishing with epically long-lasting layers of preserved black fruits and exotic spices.

"This Ducru '82 has always been a beauty. Dark ruby in color with a slight amber edge. Very fresh and floral with loads of berry and rose character. Medium-bodied with a good balance of soft tannins and a caressing finish."
