Ducru Beaucaillou

It’s always a pleasure to go on the left bank to visit friends and especially Ducru Beaucaillou and taste the 2010 vintage, visit the cellar, soak up the atmosphere, etc. Everything is aimed to put a wine enthusiast in a highly refined yet welcoming environment.

It was the 1st time I tasted the Listrac Ducluzeau, a sexy Lalande Borie, more reserved Croix de Beaucaillou and again a great Ducru Beaucaillou 2010: The oak has not yet penetrated, the freshness and purity of the grapes, the softness given by great ripeness and still with a powerful style “an iron fist in a velvet glove”. They are fortunate for having the 2008, 2009 and 2010 in a row, all so good while so different.

Doctor, if you read me: simple as a phone call, let’s see tomorrow if I still have these allergies due to pollen, hay fever, this constant stress ... Long live the phone!
