Intense colour, tight tannins, generous black fruits laced with white pepper, with waves of rose petal, fennel and dried flowers. 3.6ph. 55ha across the appellation, 35ha of Listrac, 11ha of Cussac Fort Medoc and the rest Moulis, all declassified into Haut-Medoc. 29hl/h yields, a great quality value proposition.
James Suckling 92-93
Very intense with impressive blackberry and currant aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Excellent concentration. Bright fruit. 66% merlot, 23% cabernet sauvignon and 11% petit verdot.
The 2022 Madame de Beaucaillou is a very typical wine for the year. Plump, juicy and forward, the 2022 is charming right out of the gate. Succulent red cherry fruit, spice, rose petal and lavender notes are front and center. Plush, sikly tannins wrap it all together. Bruno Borie’s Haut-Medoc is flat-out delicious.
Robert Parker 89-91
The 2022 Madame de Beaucaillou offers up aromas of dark berries, plums and pencil shavings, followed by a medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy palate that’s quite rich and concentrated, with a juicy core of fruit framed by youthfully chewy tannins. It’s a blend of 66% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot.
Jeb Dunnuck 90-92
The 2022 Madame De Beaucaillou should be outstanding, as well as a smoking value in terrific Bordeaux. Based largely on Merlot, it has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful darker cassis and blue fruits, some obvious minerality, building tannins, and outstanding length on the finish. It will drink nicely in its youth yet also have at least a decade of longevity.
The Wine Independent 88-90
A blend of 66% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Madame de Beaucaillou is deep garnet-purple in color. It slips seductively out of the glass with opulent scents of black cherry compote, plum preserves, and Indian spices with hints of dried lavender and dusty soil. The medium to full-bodied palate is jam packed with bright black fruits, framed by plush tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and savory.
