Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, 2ème Cru Classé, St. Julien 2008
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot
Deep garnet colored, the 2008 Ducru-Beaucaillou begins a little broody, giving up glimpses of tar, chargrill, moss covered tree bark and fungi scents over a core of baked plums, warm cassis and blackberry compote plus a touch of unsmoked cigars. Medium-bodied, the palate has firm, ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness supporting the earth laced black fruit layers, finishing minerally.Tasted August 2020. 94 Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate.
