Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Grand Cru Classé (6 bottle OWC) FUTURE 2023 pre-arrival ETA fall 2026

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot Noir

Tasting Notes:

- Nose: Pure and focused, with delicate violets, rich black fruits, cassis, blackberry, exotic spices, and cedarwood.

- Palate: Densely concentrated with great tannic richness, layered and finely grained. Saline-laced freshness brings succulence to the palate. Long, perfumed persistence with subtle star anise and flint notes on the finish.

Ratings:

- 97 points Decanter  

  "Lovely vibrant purple color in the glass. Smells fragrant and lifted, a combination of sweet and ripe and fresh blackcurrant and black cherries on the nose with a touch of dark chocolate. Smooth and so silky, but rich too, there’s depth and weight but not too much. I love the texture - grippy and filling no doubt, it coats the mouth with a crushed velvet texture, you feel the ripeness but there’s such lift and effortless purity of fruit that it feels fresh too. No extra fat, but equally it’s not too lean, not strict at all, where many are. Not hollow, not light, there’s no let up. Juicy cherry, blackcurrant, and blueberry with lots of liquorice on the finish. Feels well crafted." (GH) (4/2024)

  "This has aromas of blackberries and blackcurrant, as well as graphite and flint. Some gunpowder. It’s full-bodied with extremely refined tannins, a creamy character and al-dente fruit at the finish. Crunchy, succulent, and linear. Mineral edge to it, like licking a stone. Energetic." (4/2024)
