Peter Maude Fine Wines

2019, Château Ducru Beaucaillou, SAINT-JULIEN, 2nd Growth, Grand Cru Classé

$388

Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.

Inky depths to the concentrated ruby colour, the Cabernet Sauvignon imposes itself strongly from the first moment. No question that we are slap-bang in St Julien here, in the heart of this appellation's signature, with its elegance, balance and hidden power. At first the wine feels taut and austere, but performs the trick of changing as it travels through the palate, and by the end of play the texture is almost creamy, with blackberry, bilberry, black chocolate, cigar box, slate and liquorice. A big accomplishment, making this an unmissable Ducru. 98/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.

Drinking Window: 2029 - 2045.
