An outstanding effort from proprietor Bruno Borie, the 2007 Ducru exhibits sweet black currant fruit, licorice, lead pencil shaving, and wood spice characteristics along with medium to full body, a velvety mouthfeel, and outstanding density as well as richness. It is a strong effort for the vintage, and should drink well for 15+ years.
Offers sliced plum on the nose, with flowers and some oak. Medium-bodied, with polished, refined tannins that caress the palate. Builds on the finish. Racy for the vintage.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
