Wine tasting note: 1995 Ducru Beaucailloux Croix de Beaucaillou

1995 Ducru Beaucailloux Croix de Beaucaillou

20th Aug 1998 GBP28 Bordeaux Table Red

Opaque purple fading gradually to red - more mature in appearance than the Viader.
Muted nose with closed berry fruit - impression of a big wine waiting to break out.
Full bodied with sweet blackberry fruit, warm and alcoholic with good acidity. Firm tannins throughout. Cedary flavours emerge on the long, dry, tannic finish.
Needs at least 5 years but very impressive for a second wine.
