1995 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou Bordeaux Magnum - WOY! - 97 pts!

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a property in the Saint-Julien appellation of the Médoc, rated a second growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. It is often described as the quintessential Saint-Julien – deeply colored and powerfully ripe, yet balanced and harmonious. The grand vin usually needs 10 years of aging and can last for decades. A second wine, Croix de Beaucaillou, is also produced from the Ducru vineyard.

The 75-hectare (185-acre) vineyard is situated in the southeast of the appellation, near the village of Beychevelle and bordering Branaire-Ducru. It is near the river, which gives protection from frost and hail, and on the deepest gravel layers there is enhanced drainage, evening warmth, and a protective layer stopping the subsoil from drying out in heat waves. Alluvial deposits and a high clay content enrich the soil, and the vineyard takes its name from these "beautiful stones". It is planted 70 percent to Cabernet Sauvignon and 30 percent to Merlot.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator WS97 - 1995 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou Bordeaux Magnum - WOY! - 97 pts! The greatest Ducru produced this century. Breathtaking aromas of berries violets vanilla and blackberries set the stage for a wine that's full-bodied and tannic yet very fine and long in the mouth. This has fabulous structure for aging. Best after 2004. WS
