Ch Ducru-Beaucaillou 2021 St-Julien

17.5

98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot. Record proportion of Cabernet in the blend. Cask sample.
Deep, bright purple hue. Elegant cedar, dark-fruit and cassis nose. Lovely depth of fruit, velvety texture, abundant but polished tannins and lingering freshness. Drives on the finish. A well-groomed thoroughbred. Pure, precise and long and a little more classic than recent years. (JL)
