1985 Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou

A deep ruby wine of 25 years of age with paler rim and garnet tinge. The aromas have blackcurrant, vegetal, cedar, cigar box, tobacco, leather, clove, graphite and trace of smoke and earth. On palate, it is dry with medium acidity. Medium alcohol and more than medium body. The tannin is medium with  ripe, soft and silky nature. The flavours contain quite intense blackcurrant, herbaceous, clove, leather, tea leaves and cedar. Quite long length with a pleasant fruity and spicy finish. (93)
