    2005 Saint-Julien 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

    Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou has been classified Second Cru from Medoc since 1855. The exceptional terroir located in Saint-Julien appellation stretches over 100 hectares (247 acres). The excellent 2005 vintage is a subtle blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

    The legendary wine from Bordeaux displays a very deep, intense red colour. The strong and structured nose is extremely complex. The 2005 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou takes over the palate: the attack is quite alluring. Wonderful fullness and exceptional tannic structure follow finesse and harmony. The finish is without end.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2005 Ducru Beaucaillou is a 10,000-case blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot (they used to produce 18,000-20,000 cases). It is an exceptionally powerful wine with a dense purple color, superb intensity, and a beautiful, sweet nose of spring flowers, raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and creme de cassis. Full-bodied with fabulous concentration, exceptionally high tannin, good acidity, and massive layers of richness that build incrementally on the palate, this monumental effort is more structured than their outstanding 2003. It may be the finest wine produced at this estate since the 1982 and 1961 Ducrus. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050.
