Domaine Julien Masquin

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

La Croix Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

A blend of 58% Merlot, 39% Cab Sauv & 3% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby with aromas of fresh red fruit with woodsy spice. On the palate flavors of red plum and cherry with some cacao and licorice notes. This wine shows oak and mineral tones with fine tight tannins and good balance. Long finish with fruit and spice ending. Needs a few years of bottle age. Reasonably price, good value. — 3 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 2005

Sorry to say I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago. My daughters came in to celebrate this past weekend and we wanted to drink some good wine. What a trio: ‘12 Cade Reserve, ‘13 Cardinale, and ‘05 Leoville Las Cases. Ironically, I am going to score all 3 of these as 97+. They were really a treat. The Las Cases was decanted for 5 hours and it was clear that we were about 7 years too early. It’s a terrific wine and at at age ~25 it will be absolutely stunning. Already has balance and harmony. Can’t wait until I am about 67 so that I can revisit the remaking 11 bottles! — 19 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Classic old school style of Las Cases that is fully mature showing red & black fruits, currant, cedar, leather, dried herbs & tobacco. Not the power or length of the 82 & 86 but very enjoyable. — 15 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Back to 1995 tonight and one of my favorite BDX producers. This Ducru is rich and still drinking very young with huge fruit, black currants, spice and leather with a long finish. Structure is excellent but still has a little oak to smooth out, which I was somewhat surprised by. An excellent wine overall. — 15 days ago
