Tasting Note:

This is an impressive and luxuriant Ducru Beaucaillou. This great St Julien chateau has produced a perfumed, plush, gloriously decadent wine, which displays the sheer class of this terroir. The bouquet is wonderfully vivid with aromas of wild flowers, pure griotte, ripe loganberry, Chambord, smoke and spices. There is so much dense, mineral infused dark fruit on the palate; wave after wave of lavish fruit cascades over the mouth. It doesn't have the fluidity and ease of the truly great wines of the vintage, and some might say it is a bit technical, but there is so much to admire here. If you like hedonistic fruit and grand, velour tannins, then the 2017 Ducru will be right up your street. So much concentration and fruit. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.
