Château Ducru Beaucaillou 1999

£120

The gravel based soils of St Julien are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon which is the backbone of Ducru Beaucaillou.  The 1999 vintage is stunning, elegant fruity and concentrated. Medium red in colour with aromas of black cherry, red-berried fruit, sandalwood, leather, cedar and a touch of spice.  It is medium bodied and very well balanced with a fresh fruity finish. Try with with goose breast with mushrooms and Médocaine sauce.

Just 24 bottles remaining-perfectly stored in original wooden cases. Available for inspection at our wine store in East Surrey. Duty and VAT paid stock include
