Peter Maude Fine Wines

2019, Château Ducru Beaucaillou, SAINT-JULIEN, 2nd Growth, Grand Cru Classé Double Magnum 3000mL


Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.

There is tannin build up at this point in the vertical, but in the most enjoyable way - a clear indication of how much complexity there is in these wines and how densely knitted together they are, bedding down for the long term. This wine in particular has barely an end in sight, it just stretches out before you, confident in its fleshy texture and layers of expression. This is really at the top of what you hope from St Julien, confident and intense yet still with the balance and freshness of the appellation. It has great persistency and keeps hanging on, delivering flavour an inch at a time. Wonderful. 98/100 Jane Anson, Decanter. 

Drinking Window: 2023 - 2045.
