Great, very classic Pauillac red, super to enjoy now if decanted well in advance or can be kept another 10 years.

Bright medium ruby. Deep, superripe aromas of dark berries, black cherry and bitter chocolate; slightly exotic crystallized fruit aspect. Dense, sweet and wonderfully rich; a lovely combination of palate-caressing chocolately fruit and firm underlying structure. Finishes with excellent grip and great palate-saturating sweetness. Another outstanding 1996 Médoc wine in the making. Drink 2010 through 2030.

Muscular Ducru. Fantastic aromas of blackberries, wild berries, and minerals. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied and very tight, with big, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Superb. Best after 2010.

Ruby-red. Reticent but pure aromas of cassis, blueberry, minerals, Cuban cigar tobacco and deep spices. Quite closed in the mouth today, with subtly complex dark berry and spice flavors. Not exactly dense but sappy and rather pliant. Finishes with su... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Ducru Beaucaillou 3000ml

Intense aromas of blackberry, currant and cherry. Full-bodied, with masses of big, velvety tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. A blockbuster. A classic big, juicy claret. Best after 2012.

Aromas of blackberry, currant and toasty oak, with a hint of spice, lead to a full-bodied palate, with plenty of blackberry, chocolate and Indian spices. Balanced, refined and very pretty, with a velvety texture and a long, beautifully textured finish. Best after 2013.

The 1988 Ducru is a medium-bodied wine, without the profound depth and intensity of fruit of the 1980. Possessing high tannins and good ripeness, with an overall sense of compactness and toughness, it recalls the style of the best 1966 Médocs. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2008.

Ducru delivers absolute deliciousness in 2005, a refined and elegant pleasure that just feels right in the end. It could be that after all the sleek, floral beauty, the polished chocolate-truffle tannin, there's a formidable grip that tightens around the finish. Suddenly it feels as hard as iron. If the aromatic beauty of the fruit can survive while the tannin matures, this could well be a wine to covet in 20 years.
