Tasting Note:

Bruno Borie continues to drive quality at this estate ever upwards. Notes of Liquid minerals, graphite and lead pencil are interspersed with aromas of cut flowers and small black berries. The attack is full of cool dark fruits, cassis and flavours reminiscent of blackcurrant fruit pastels. A very pure and stylish wine with great concentration, depth and length. A suave yet powerful Ducru Beaucaillou. A big favourite with our Chairman this year.
