Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2eme Cru Classe, St Julien, Bordeaux 1982
From a 2020 release from the Chateau's Cellars recorked in 2011
""The harvest lasted 16 days from the 16th September," proprietor Bruno Borie mentioned about the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou. Medium brick colored, it comes galloping out of the glass with bold, expressive notes of Black Forest cake, preserved plums and mincemeat pie with hints of cigar box, star anise, eucalyptus and espresso plus wafts of roasted nuts and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, generous and opulent, the palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of youthful fruit, finishing with epically long-lasting layers of preserved black fruits and exotic spices." Lisa Perrotti Brown robertparker.com 97/100 August 2020
"Sweet, liquorice nose and rather attractively pungent on the finish. Still a very good wine with such fruit intensity that I initially took it for a right bank wine. (It was served blind.)" Jancis Robinson jancisrobinson.com 17.5/20
