1995 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2nd Growth St. Julien (12 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux St Julien

This wine is of first-growth quality, not only from an intellectual perspective, but in its hedonistic characteristics. More open-knit and accessible than the extraordinary 1996, Ducru's 1995 exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color, followed by a knock-out nose of blueberry and black raspberry/cassis fruit intertwined with minerals, flowers, and subtle toasty new oak. Like its younger sibling, the wine possesses a sweet, rich mid-palate (from extract and ripeness, not sugar), layers of flavor, good delineation and grip, but generally unobtrusive tannin and acidity. It is a classic, compelling example of Ducru-Beaucaillou that should not be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025.

Vinous

Bright red-ruby color. Knockout aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, lead pencil and roast coffee. Penetrating, vibrant and very intensely flavored; in the classic drier Ducru style, but with superb, palate-staining fruit and brilliant delineation. Very long and very complex on the back end. Really classic claret.

Vinous

Deep, saturated color. Knockout nose combines pungent raspberry and cassis, minerals, iodine and a hint of fresh blood; some sexy high tones give this great appeal. Rich and thick in the mouth, but fresh and delineated, with lovely sweetness and superb flavor intensity. A faint sweaty/iron character and some tangy black cherry and boysenberry give the wine great inner-mouth aromatics. Here s a 1995 St. Julien that really coats the mouth and stains the palate. Beguiling and compelling wine.
