2006 Ducluzeau, Listrac (Previously $20)
Nice nose of briary fruit, easy supple wine, quite forward. 2009-14.
With 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this property belongs to Bruno Borie of Ducru Beaucaillou. Rather simple red fruits plus florality on the nose. Bit dry on the end and pretty light but less rustic than some Listracs. Slightly dry and inky on the finish but a worthy attempt. Drink 2010-2016.
This little known estate is owned by the Borie family of Ducru fame and is the home of Madame Borie, wife of the late Jean Borie and mother of Bruno Borie of Ducru Beaucaillou. This is Listrac with finesse and charm and toasty oak nuances. Delicious and ready to drink tonight!
