Wine Advocate #88 (Aug 1993) Robert M. Parker, Jr.- 91 POINTS - "One of the stars of the vintage, the 1978 Ducru-Beaucaillou has reached its plateau of maturity. It offers a deep ruby color with only a touch of amber at the edge, and a bouquet of complex aromas of truffles, cassis, licorice, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied, with excellent concentration, soft tannins, and a nicely layered feel, this wine reveals vague hints of the weedy herbaceousness that has come to dominate so many of this vintage's wines."
