Château Ducru-Beaucaillou celebrates its 300th anniversary with a special label for the 2020 (radically eschewing the black and gold colour scheme of its peers). They have released a little film of the harvest being carried out in 18th century garb. It feels like a cross between the Petit Trianon and Poldark, so we have spared you it.
The wine itself does not need any fancy dress, scoring a potential 99 points from Suckling and Jeb Dunnuck, the latter commenting "Along with the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, it might be the wine of the vintage from the Médoc." Jane Anson concurs, calling it "An amazing Ducru, one of the wines of the vintage." Demand will be high, so please don't delay if you would like to order...
