1988 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

SKU #950094 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a little softer than the 1986, with coffee, plum and cassis notes. It's highly appealing right now, sweet and caressing as it opens in the glass, but this is one to drink within the next five to 10 years. The exact blend was not recorded, so the blend shown reflects the vineyard plantings, with 5% Petit Verdot. (JA) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows outstanding structure and definition. New oak comes through in the coffee and plum aromas and the palate is firm and concentrated, with delicious blackberry flavors. (TM) Inner quote mark (10/1992)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Red-ruby. Perfumed, sappy aromas of redcurrant, flowers and minerals. Intensely flavored, high-pitched and penetrating, with a deep core of spice contributing to the impression of vinosity. Shows a youthful austerity today. Finishes very long and brisk, with substantial, dusty tannins. I always think of Michael Broadbent descriptor flavory (actually, flavoury) when I taste a dry, classic vintage of Ducru. 91+ Inner quote mark (5/2001)
