Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

A very severe selection for the first wine has resulted in a leap in quality for the second wine at this Château. The grapes for this wine come from the central part of the St Julien commune. A super second wine from a "super second" Classed Growth property.

Tasting Notes

Ripe, hedonistic yet elegant. This sums up this wonderfully complex and beautifully knit claret from the humorous and always entertaining Bruno Borie. Layers of warm black fruits, infused with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla pod and cassis. Elegant throughout yet powerfully structured. A lovely touch of herbal freshness permeates this wine, yet underlying these fresh and elegant touches is the brooding sense of power, generous tannins and sinew. Long in the mouth, persistent, creamy and concentrated. Outstanding.
