Ducru Beaucaillou 2011 (93JS) (1.5L)
93-95 WA 94 WS
"This shows excellent aromas of crushed berries, minerals and roses. Full body with silky, balanced tannins. Fruity and reserved. Shows wonderful finesse for the Médoc in 2011...93" JS 02/14 "One of the vintage’s stars, the 2011 Ducru Beaucaillou is a riveting blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.
