    2009 Saint-Julien 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

    Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou's name refers to gorgeous, large rocks on its unique terroir. The vineyard is located at the heart of a centennial park with stunning view of Gironde estuary. The 2009 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot.

    The vintage from Saint-Julien appellation boasts intense purple hue. The nose reveals rich fragrances of very ripe black fruit with hints of cedar. The palate offers thick and luscious structure, with dense, smooth, and creamy tannins. This 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux carries superb freshness and bursting fruits. The finish has feline grace and remarkable persistence.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou bursts from the glass with an amazing array of black fruit preserves and savory layers--crème de cassis, blackberry tart, baked plums and mincemeat pie with suggestions of black olives, sautéed herbs and beef drippings plus wafts of sweaty leather and sandalwood. Full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and tons of freshness, the muscular fruit completely coats the palate with juicy berry preserves, while the finish is long and savory.
