The 2014 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the richest, most explosive wines of the year. This St-Julien wine has fabulous aromas of crushed berries such as blackberries and blackcurrants, not to mention spices. Wet earth and cedar, too. Complex. Full-bodied, yet agile and complete. A dense center palate. Ultra-round tannins. Everything in the right balance. The 2014 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou wine is a quintessentially Saint Julien.
