    Description

    Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1983
    St. Julien
    owc
    Bottle (12)


    "...an austerity and aggressiveness to its tannin, but it is a very good to excellent Ducru-Beaucaillou with an earthy, peppery nose of black fruits, earth, and minerals. The wine's attack and mid-palate are ripe, with smoky, black currant fruit…" (87 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)

    “…It has a surprisingly intense, lifted bouquet with strong savoury notes, quite animally/meaty, touches of spice and thyme. If I am to complain, it is just a little diffuse at 27-years of age. The palate is medium-bodied and quite candied on the entry, fully mature as one would expect with vibrant red-berried fruit, cigar box, a touch of thyme, well integrated oak with a refined finish…” (91 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Journal #710, July 2010)


    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,300.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
