Chateau DUCRU BEAUCAILLOU Saint-Julien 1986

Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes: Medium brick in color with a touch of brown, the 1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou reveals growing notes of dried mulberries, kirsch and raisin cake with nuances of celery salt, dried bay leaves, truffles and charcuterie plus hints of old leather sofa and fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has quite a powerful structure with firm, chewy tannins and bold freshness supporting the muscular, dried berries flavors, finishing long with a dried mint kick. - The Wine Advocate
About the Winery:
Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, whose origin dates back to the beginning of the 18th century, is one of the only chateaux in the Bordeaux region to be built directly on the cellars and one of the few to be permanently occupied by its owners.
