International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Red-ruby. Perfumed, sappy aromas of redcurrant, flowers and minerals. Intensely flavored, high-pitched and penetrating, with a deep core of spice contributing to the impression of vinosity. Shows a youthful austerity today. Finishes very long and brisk, with substantial, dusty tannins. I always think of Michael Broadbent descriptor flavory (actually, flavoury) when I taste a dry, classic vintage of Ducru.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A supremely elegant, dense purple-colored effort, the 1998 reveals aromas of cassis, black raspberries, minerals, and currants. Precise, well-delineated, and medium to full-bodied, with magnificent purity and understated elegance, this noble, restrained wine reveals a tannic finish, suggesting 4-5 more years of cellaring is warranted.

Aromas of berry, tobacco and cherry. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a silk-textured finish. Delicate structure. An elegant Ducru.

Stills Very youthful and somehow tannic but the red fruit core are there son keep a little more time in bottle to gain such beautiful complexity.
