Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou St.Julien 2eme Grand Cru Classe 2012
This vintage exemplifies the mastery of the estate, showcasing a harmonious blend of dark fruits, elegant spices, and refined tannins. With a character that evolves gracefully, it's a wine to savor now or allow to mature further, revealing even more layers of complexity.
This is a wine with big tannins and big fruit. You can feel the wood rather than taste it, certainly smell it initially before the black currant aromas kick in. Impressive and sumptuous, it has a solid density that layers with the smoky character of the fruit and wood. Rich and complex, it needs to age. Drink from 2025.
