Anise and silky smooth black olives and a bit thin. A quick finish cherries . Still a young baby. This really needs to be revisited in 7-10 years

Silky smooth with integrated graphite, cedar, red apple skin, and blackberry tart. Great wine drinking at its peak now.

Despite doing a PnP the nose was full of cassis, leather and smoke. The palate introduced a red fruit component that was not on the nose along with hints of green pepper and earth . Despite the round tannins I felt the finish was slightly compressed. Will hold off 2-3 years before revisiting.

Tart berry bullshit. Ducru is probably the most disappointing chateau in all of Bordeaux. The wines get the press but NEVER show well. Weird!

Outstanding aroma, length, strength....and a gallet from the vineyard itself to go along with it!
