Château Ducru Beaucaillou, 2ème cru classé 2009

RRP £235

Like lots about what owner Bruno Borie does (from the international flags signalling the property from the route des châteaux, to its red-lipsticked, short-skirted hosts), this bouquet is attention-grabbing. Seriously alluring, the nose is sweet and extracted, with enticing, ripe red and black fruit, and blackberry jam. This translates into fruit that is purer on the palate, luscious and nimble. It is a delight to drink, with a moreish, light-touch finish. A classy effort.
