Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

$189

Dark-ruby in color and a hint of brick red at the edge. Ripe fruit aromas of plums and raspberries. Full-bodied and very soft, with round tannins and a delicious chocolaty aftertaste. Slightly dry, papery finish. Wine Spectator

Elegant. Soft tannins. Nice balance of nose and taste, and earth. Very covered fruit. Stayed with us over an hour meal after opening up. A wonderful old friend.

Still showing well. Nice bottle evolution...everything still well knit together. The mid red fruits shining, tannins completely resolved with a nice balance of nice light earthiness. @ Pebble Beach Food & Wine.

Reconditioned at the chateau. A great meaty and dirty example of aged Bordeaux. #morrellstafeducation

Still pretty young, although there is a touch of funk. A lot of tertiary aromas, with cedar and cigar box being the most prevalent.
