DescriptionChateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1978
"An outstanding 1978, Ducru-Beaucaillou's effort displays a fragrant, well-developed bouquet of licorice, earth, black currants, and underbrush. Rich for a 1978, with none of the vegetal character now found in many wines of this vintage, this fully mature, medium-bodied wine exhibits soft tannin, excellent concentration and purity, and a sweet, elegant finish." (90 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)
Estimate: $110 - $140.
