Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2016 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fruity and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful race as well as a very fine intensity. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry and wild strawberry associated with small touches of cassis as well as discreet hints of tonka bean, violet, Sichuan pepper, spices, graphite and an imperceptible hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity and offers a beautiful definition, delicacy, a beautiful finesse of the grain, a beautiful suavty, a very beautiful elegance, a beautiful finesse of the structure, an acidulous frame, a beautiful purity of the fruit as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and more slightly strawberry associated with touches of small fruits, liquorice, vanilla, an imperceptible hint of blueberry (in the background) as well as very fine touches of chocolate, toasted oak and a very discreet hint of caramelization. Beautiful chews on the finish. Tannisn are fine, elegant, well-built and struturing. Gourmandize and appetence on the aftertaste. A very beautiful wine, fine, elegant, delicate and perfectly well-balanced between power, concentration, gourmandize and elegance. Beautifulsuccess! Beautifulpersistence!
