    Description

    Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1988
    St. Julien
    1nl, 11lwasl, Rebouche au Chateau in 2011
    Bottle (11)


    "The 1988 Ducru is a medium-bodied wine, without the profound depth and sheer intensity of fruit of the 1989. Possessing high tannins and good ripeness, with an overall sense of compactness and toughness, it recalls the style of the best 1966 Medocs." (88 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed. , Dec. 1997)

    "Shows outstanding structure and definition. New oak comes through in the coffee and plum aromas and the palate is firm and concentrated, with delicious blackberry flavors." (92 pts. Wine Spectator, Oct. 1992).
