The 2019 Le Petit Ducru is another new wine in the range. It is a Merlot-based blend made mostly as a third selection of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Plump, juicy and inviting, the 2019 offers tons of appeal. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice, cedar and tobacco meld into the supple finish.
The Wine Advocate – 89-91/100
A newcomer to the Ducru-Beaucaillou stable, the 2019 Le Petit Ducru is a blend of 60% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. It has an alcohol of 14.2% and the pH is 3.79. It is set to age for 12 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with notes of crushed black and red plums, mulberries and black raspberries plus hints of cumin seed, pencil shavings and sautéed herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with expressive, ready-for-biz black fruits with a firm frame of chewy tannins and lively acidity, finishing long with some provocative earthy notes coming through.
