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.
90 Jane Anson.

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.
90-92 Neal Martin.

The density here is very pretty with blackcurrant and lead pencil. Graphite, too. Medium-bodied, balanced and savoury. Fine and perfumed. Solid finish. 
92-93 James Suckling.
