Small year St.-Julien performs big


Ducru1

1999 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien
Immediately upon opening notes of tobacco and leather.  Then blackberry competing with cedar.  Then more fruit.  A really solid mid-palate.  The wine is so “Bordeaux.”  Nice texture and quite stylish.  This is really a classic middle-aged Bordeaux that transcends the vintage.  I was impressed by the length.  This wine will hold for many more years in a cold cellar.  Will it further develop?
