Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2008

Bordeaux - Saint-Julien - Red - 13° Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2008 1026/08
  • Parker : 95+
  • J. Robinson : 17,5

2008 Saint-Julien 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou's 75 hectares vineyard (185.3 acres) is located at the heart of a centennial park with stunning view of Gironde estuary. The 2008 release is a lovely blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot.

The vintage from Saint-Julien appellation reveals a beautiful, dark violet hue, and a very rich nose with scent of cassis liqueur and blackberry paired with elegant touch of roasted coffee. The sweet and fleshy attack evolves into a strong, robust mid-palate. Unusually refined tannins carry the long and powerful finish.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
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. It is more forward than the 2010 is likely to be, but probably not as sumptuous as the 2009 will turn out to be. This is a wine to buy. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.;2016 - 2035
