Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou St Julien 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 16-Sep-2013
2eme, 72 ha, 70% CS, 30% Me. Saturated and full purple-black colour. This has a relatively elegant and proportioned nose, packed with intense aromas of blackcurrants, cassis and sweetly ripe black fruits intermingling with layers of currants, dark herbs and minerals. A strong, toasty charry oak presence features alongside the fruit aromatics. Medium-full bodied, high-toned blackcurrant essence and high toast oak flavours show with considerable aromatic depth, unfolding and filling the palate. The flavours are supported by very refined tannin extraction, and the wine is velvety and supple, quite accessible. The finesse of the mouthfeel is the feature, and the sweetness of fruit grows to become near-fleshy. Discreet acidity provides excellent tension and the palate flows seamlessly with concentration and linearity. This is an elegant Ducru Beaucaillou as is always, with marked new oak in the modern style. 15+ years ahead easily. 18.5+/20 Sep 2013 RRP $693.00
