Supple 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.
RP82 drink now Fully mature, this narrowly constructed, angular, compact Ducru-Beaucaillou reveals a healthy medium ruby color with a little amber at the edge. The undistinguished nose offers straightforward, slightly diluted, curranty fruit and damp earth. High acidity has kept the wine fresh in the mouth, but there is not much depth, body, or length. Drink it up. Last tasted, 1/93.
