Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

$159

One of the stars of the vintage, and a remarkable achievement in 2008, with impressive richness, this dense purple colored wine is almost as opaque as the 2010. Spring flowers, crushed rocks, creme de cassis and some subtle oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine that transcends the vintage character in its power, richness, and aging potential. It also exhibits tremendous precision, purity, and depth of character... This is a wine to buy. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035. Robert Parker

Less brett than 2001 and noticeable change in style from Father to Son from 2001 to 2008.

3 hour decant (plenty of chunky/fine sediment). A prodigious inky dark magenta color. On the nose: blackberry, cedar, floral, pine, currants, and vanilla toast. Taste: A smooth, balanced medium plus body wine with blackberry, chocolate, earth, cigar box, and a minerally dark cherry long dry finish. DUCRU.....a 13% alc old world style treat.
