1985 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou St. Julien
This deep dark St.Julien is a classic. Intense and harmonious it is beautifully balanced with a long long finish.
DecanterRating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep red, no signs of maturity; firm classic nose, lacks a little charm but stylish, discreet; lean, slightly woody, obtrusive oak, but ample vigour and liveliness; quite good length.
Wine.comSupple yet full-bodied, a typically fine Saint Julien that needs 8-10 years to reveal its rich and fruity, elegant flavors of cassis, vanilla and ripe blackberries.
