Description · Château Ducru Beaucaillou

2008 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou (Cabernet Franc and Merlot)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: 2008 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou shows a dense purple.
  • Nose: The nose is rich with aromas of creme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) and blackcurrant, and elegant nuances of roasted coffee.
  • Mouth: After a sweet and fleshy attack, the wine builds in the mouth, revealing their power and structure. It is similar to a Roman building, all in roundness, but impressive. Particularly soft tannins.

GRAPES: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot

I enjoyed with a good friend.
Red wine with violet reflections. This Château Ducru Beaucaillou smells like violets. It reveals a kind of salty aftertaste.
A wine to be paired with "Tapas".

The best pairing would have been with fish. I like to surprise my family with this wine.
Red almost purple. Very good aromas of vanilla. For me it tasted like grape.

Ducru Beaucaillou 2013
A good red to finish the meal properly. I bought it at the behest of a friend.
Red base with violet hues. Toffee smell, followed by coffee smell. Sweet and fruity, well-balanced acidity.
