Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, Saint-Julien 1995

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Ruby.  The customary richness bounces off a wall of radiance, combining into a complex toast and chocolate note and warms into a lush finish.  Elegant and the balance is first-rate but the “Ducru magic”, as Barb would say, that morse-code of timelessness and mystery is curiously absent from this bottle.  Now – 2025+.
