A wine of extraordinary aromatic complexity and finesse, this sweet effort possesses a dark ruby color with a pink rim. Once past the gloriously complex aromatics (blueberries, black currants, minerals, and underbrush), the wine reveals terrific fruit intensity, excellent harmony, medium body, sweet tannin, and a long finish. This superb, elegant 1982 has achieved full maturity, but it promises to last for another 15+ years.

Aroma of blueberries and black currants and this wine drinks marvellous and classic with a long delectible finish. Medium body, dark ruby color this wine reveals some fruit with a lovely spice flavor but should be drunk within five years. This Ducru is stong on the pleasure meter for its taste and finish.

Needs 3 hours to come into its own. Richer than the Barton. Fully mature but will probably last a long time. Truly elegant.
