The 1999 Ducru packs a punch. Leather, bacon fat, spice and an infinitely long finish. This wine tasted fairly youthful given it is nearly 20 years old.

This killed the 99 pichon lalande we had side by side. Much more fruit, very plush and full bodied. A touch riper than the lalande. Really screams st Julien. Drink this beauty now and over the next 5-10 years

Tasted 3/15.
Decanted. Beautiful balance, only slight greenness. Non-offensive sulfer blew off in 30 minutes. Reticent nose with leather and cherry. Integrated tannins, great acid. Growth over dinner to reveal rich fruit, cocoa over tones. A wonderful wine, underrated IMHO.

Lovely! Fresh red fruit, roasted herbs and veggies. Beefstew, smoke and black pudding. 😍

Came around after a couple of hours open. Still very youthful.
