Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

...It is an exceptionally powerful wine with a dense purple color, superb intensity, and a beautiful, sweet nose of spring flowers, raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and creme de cassis. Full-bodied with fabulous concentration, exceptionally high tannin, good acidity, and massive layers of richness that build incrementally on the palate, this monumental effort is more structured than their outstanding 2003. It may be the finest wine produced at this estate since the 1982 and 1961 Ducrus... Robert Parker

Surprisingly elegant for the amount of fruit and density in the nose and the palate. Medium/medium+ body...tannin are fine and seem fairly resolved where that might smooth over the edges of firmer tannin.

This is very very strong. Modern St Julien, powerhouse yet very elegant. The nose is very serious, almost 1er Grd Cru- like. I must admit that I rather have a very good dicey like this one instead of a ok Mouton.

Young, gripping and dense. Hope to see again in 20 years.

An absolute monster. This wine needs another 20 years at least. Huge and the oak completely dominates right now (coconut)
