Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

For sheer elegance, charm, and finesse, the 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou has it all. The wine is close to full maturity, yet retains a vibrancy and youthfulness that is unusual for a 1985. The generous flavors are soft, but not flabby. The wine possesses outstanding concentration yet is elegant and refreshing. This is a beautifully knit, harmonious Ducru. Robert Parker

#1985 #ChateauDucruBeaucaillou (one of the oldest Bordeaux Wine producing Estates in the Medoc & named after the Large Stones that cover their unique soil!) Salty Goodness, Tobacco, Blackberry, Cassis, Red Cherry, Black Plum... Vinified in stainless steel vats. This wine glides down your throat. A very smooth ride. :)

85 is apparently the year for this wine. Couldn't be more smooth, yet bursting with rich flavor. The taste lingers ever so slightly making you wish it would never end.

Understated for a Ducru but was a big hit. Easy to drink and probably at peak

Good but faded fast. Bought on secondary market but I believe this was an original release and not from 2011, if that makes a difference
