Château Ducru-Beaucaillou – 2nd Cru Classé, Saint-Julien – 2013

An elegant wine with great complexity including mouth. The nose is precise fruity notes associated with floral notes (violet) and spices (including tobacco) and smoky notes. The palate is well structured, balanced, long and reveals aromas of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry), cherry, spices accompanied by woody notes. The finish shows a good freshness. The tannins are fine and remarkably well integrated. As usual for this vintage must emphasize the purity and good expression of the fruit.
