Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

The greatest Ducru produced this century. Breathtaking aromas of berries, violets, vanilla and blackberries set the stage for a wine that's full-bodied and tannic, yet very fine and long in the mouth. This has fabulous structure for aging. Best after 2004. Wine Spectator

Sexy, warm cherries, charming and open, great length, no heaviness, tealeaf, fresh ground coffee. Tannines are integrating. Comfortable like grandpa's leather chair.

1995 vintage is drinking beautifully. Excellent structure and depth, dark fruit, smooth tannins, lovely balance and finish.

Cedar and tobacco notes intertwined with red currant and plum. Firm tannins with a lengthy finish.

Oh boy. Still a monster but the tannins had relaxed enough at 20 years old to enjoy it with a ribeye. I loved it. If Napa had the testicular fortitude to pick their fruit this timely, terroir could be more easily distinguished.

This wine has an incredible texture with good extraction and grip but nicely fleshed out in the mid palate...like thick rough silk. Soft acidity with blackberry jam & creme de cassis with notes of purple flowers, stony minerality and tobacco leaf.
