Graphite, lead, pencil shavings... and a weird one, teriyaki/soy sauce. Not a big Bordeaux guy but this was cool.

Classic and elegant expression of a left bank Bordeaux- violet, blackberry, cassis, black plum, hints of leather and sweet spice, graphite, on a medium body with fairly integrated tannins (some grip) and a lasting taste of black fruit. Still could go another 5 years but showing nicely now and a harmonious pairing with short rib

Typical St Julien seduction. The consistency of this wine is just mind blowing. Depth, elegance and gourmandise would best describe it. Much more to offer in the coming years.

Classic Ducru - The 2003 starts with notes of dark cherry and berry fresh and rich fruit but still structured with good length. The aromatics have become expressive with the time in bottle

Managed very well for the vintage, rolling along with 11 years of age gracefully. #ducrubeaucaillou #supersecondgrowth #stjulien

I don't drink as much Bordeaux as I once did, so it's nice to revisit on occasion. This is a nice drink that for me only suffers due to a hint of heat given the year and a touch of green tannin. Otherwise, the fruit seems fresh and the body is full. I think this is nearing its apex and should hold there for a spell, but I don't think there is a ton of upside.
