Winemaker's Notes

An outstanding effort from proprietor Bruno Borie, the 2007 Ducru exhibits black currant fruit, licorice, lead pencil shaving, and wood spice characteristics along with medium to full body, a velvety mouthfeel, and outstanding density as well as richness.

This beautifully poised Ducru is as modern and seductively fruity as ever butdisplays a purer more intellectual edge in 2007 that reveals the estate'senormous potential. Ruthless work in the vineyard was the key to Ducru'ssuccess, with extensive green and pink harvesting throughout the year. Madefrom far more Cabernet Sauvignon (90%) than usual, its enticing nose of blackcherries, eucalyptus and mocha is followed by exuberant, fresh, brambly spice,rich raspberries, vanilla and cedar all wrapped in a lovely polished structure.This is a classy, impeccably balanced Ducru read more...well worthy of its gloriousheritage.
