"The style of Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of elegance combined with the balance and fruit character one expects from St-Julien.The Léovilles can be more powerfully structured, and Gruaud-Larose occasionally richer, but Ducru-Beaucaillou leads with its finesse and length and freshness on the finish."

"The style of Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of elegance combined with the balance and fruit character one expects from St-Julien.

"The Léovilles can be more powerfully structured, and Gruaud-Larose occasionally richer, but Ducru-Beaucaillou leads with its finesse and length and freshness on the finish.

"These are wines that are generally slow to develop, needing a good ten years before all components are in tune..."

100 The nose is phenomenal with perfect aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon with currant bush, blackberries and minerals. A pure expression of Cab. The palate is perfect with a full body, but has perfectly integrated tannins with a texture like the finest cashmere. It's strong but noble with perfect form and beauty. All in harmony. A fabulous wine that everyone who loves Bordeaux should have a bottle or case of. Better in 2020.
