Winemaker Notes: The 2008 Ducru-Beaucaillou exhibits a beautiful robe of a profound violet colour, firm to the rim. The nose is rich, with scents of crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) and redcurrant liqueur, and elegant nuances of roasted coffee. After a sweet and fleshy attack, the wine builds up in the mouth, revealing power and structure. It is akin to a Roman construction, all in roundness, but imposing. Particularly suave tannins buttress the persistent and powerful finish.
