These stones, which can be up to 2.5" inches in length, stretch deep beneath the earth's surface providing excellent drainage and aeration for the vines at Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou.

95(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Inky ruby.  Intense mineral high notes complement aromas of cassis, smoke and quinine on the deep, very pure nose. Then seamless and graceful in the mouth, with very smooth, glossy, ripe black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by bright harmonious acidity, which confers a sense of refinement to all the plush fruit.  The very long finish shows a persistent note of violet. Though this is an atypically big and creamy Ducru, it manages a precise delivery of archetypical Saint-Julien flavors and refinement.  (ID)
