Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2005 Saint-Julien
Origin: Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (67%), merlot (33%)
Comments from the cellar master (21 March 2006)
The colour is a deep, garnet red.
The nose encountered on the attack; is powerful and tight, truly complex.
In the mouth, the wine overruns the palate. The sensual opening spreads out generously on a big wine with a strong tannic structure marked by "finesse" and harmony. It draws out on an extremely long finish.
It seems to be a great Ducru, able to reach great heights!
