2012 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, Cru Classé St-Julien

Bruno Borie compared Ducru Beaucaillou in this vintage to Chinese actress Fan Bingbing. This reference was perhaps lost on us a little, but he defined it more closely later on, saying that he felt it was "extremely elegant and stylish, not over muscled... a good classic claret". We would tend to agree. Alluring on the nose, with notes of purple flowers and dark fruit and a touch of nutmeg spice and black pepper. The palate opens out to reveal rich, bitter chocolate, plum and damson characters, layered with soft, fine and structured tannins. A tremendous wine for Ducru this year.
