Tasting Notes Ducru Beaucaillou 1997

87

A classy, complex bouquet of lead pencil, mineral, earth, cassis, and flowers jumps from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored 1997. Evolved and elegant, with noticeable tannin, it exhibits both breed and class as well as moderate weight, excellent depth, purity, and symmetry. Enjoy it now and over the next 10-12 years ... at the minimum.

First tasted blind for Wine magazine in April 2002 against 1997 Super-Seconds, where it was very exotic and almost Super-Tuscan! Again at the Bordeaux 97 seminar where the Merlot seemed to be driving things, sacrificing structure for short-term sweetness and accessibility. There is nothing wrong with that. A complete wine with a tinge of anis on the finish. One of my favorites of the tasting. Again one month later: first signs of aging on the rim. Slightly more lifted and open-knit on the nose than the 98 but with less complexity and power. A whiff of gun smoke. Palate is more concentrated than other 97's although compared to the 98 it shows its lesser breed. High acidity on the finish with lacks a little oomph. Drinking over the next 5 years. Tasted November 2003.
