1970 Ducru Beaucaillou - St Julien (750ml)


Quantity in Stock: 15

Wine Advocate: 92 Points

This wine has been fully mature and delicious for many years, so I was not surprised by how stunning this bottle was. It has always been an outstanding wine for the vintage - complex, rich, savory, and the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. This beauty continues to reveal the fragrance and finesse that one expects from Lafite-Rothschild but so rarely finds. A fragrant, complex bouquet of cedar, herbs, vanillin, fruitcake, and coffee is followed by a soft, gentle, graciously-constructed wine with sweet layers of fruit. I am not sure how much longer the 1970 Ducru will keep, but from regular bottle, it is delicious and should be consumed. How nice it would be to have a stock of magnums of this wine in the cellar! - WA, RP (6/1996)

Vinous: 91 Points

Vivid ruby with a hint of amber: still quite youthful-looking. Smoky dark fruits and dried flowers on the nose, complicated by truffle and graphite. Then juicy and focused on the palate, with clean blackberry and dark cherry flavors lifted by sneaky minerality and framed by silky tannins. The finish features mounting, slightly chewy tannins and a lingering sweetly spicy quality. I like this wine's balanced, pure delivery of fruit and spice flavors.- Ian D'Agata (3/214)
