Quick Overview

RP- 90-92 POINTS

The color is a healthy deep ruby/purple and the wine smells beautiful, exhibiting lots of floral, creme de cassis, licorice and graphite notes. Medium-bodied but slightly deficient in the mid-palate at present, it picks up speed and finishes with serious authority and power. This 2012 should be outstanding, but it is difficult to favorably compare the 2012 to the prodigious wines produced at Ducru in 2009 and 2010. The 2012 will require 4-6 years of cellaring and should drink well for 15-20 years.

Grand Cru de Bordeaux

Deep, vivid purple with a beautiful bouquet of blackcurrant and notes of violets. The palate has plenty of fruit, smooth tannins and good acidity. Well structured and very elegant with finesse. The finish has very good persistence and is long. Overall well balanced, an archetypal “claret”.
Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot
