From the team at Ducru-Beaucaillou, the 2016 Château Ducluzeau is possibly one of the finest Listracs produced in any vintage. This beauty offers a medium ruby color to go with a terrific perfume of sweet cherry and dark fruits that are supported by loads of leafy herbs, damp earth, and even hints of graphite. Shockingly deep, medium-bodied, and beautifully concentrated, with ripe tannins, it shines for its purity and nuance but offers serious intensity as well. It's a fabulous wine to drink over the coming 10-15 years.

Sleek in feel, with subtle red currant and cherry fruit flavors lined with mulling spice and sandalwood notes. Offers a mineral twinge on the focused finish. A pure, elegant style. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made.

Firm with dark tannins and rich fruit, this is a structured wine. It has a jammy backdrop of ripe Merlot that promises richness and ripe berry flavors to come. Drink from 2022.

The 2016 Ducluzeau is a blend of 79% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot with a relatively high IPT of 88 and 14% alcohol. Matured for 12 months in 20% new oak, it has a tightly wound bouquet of small dark cherries, a touch of vanilla and Valrona chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with a little hardness on the entry, a crisp seam of acidity and a muscular finish that just needs more flesh to come through. It is a little brutish at the moment to be honest, so hopefully it will soften during its élevage.
