    This wine, along with the tremendous Vieux Chateau Certan, would be at the very, very top of my list for best of the vintage. In my humble opinion, Ducru outshined the entire pack of first-growths, the big players of Pomerol, and the mineral-rich wines of the Graves. It was both elegance and refinement defined. Sensual and perfectly ripe fruit with seamless integration and a precision that moved from front to back in perfect balance. We all left the chateau simply mesmerized by the experience. I'm hoping everyone who buys a bottle of the 2015 has a similar epiphany by the time they open it. Not to be missed.

    One of the top wines of the vintage-first growths included. Only 13.5% alcohol in this almost perfect wine. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% enjoyable-even now. The red fruit and cassis aromas are intense mixed with some toasty oak. Round and rich on the palate. Silky texture with layers of fruit. Sensational.
    Drink from 2018 to 2038

    **One of the wines of the vintage** Intense core of Cabernet fruit all wrapped with poised structure and tension. Very fresh, pure, and deep with cassis, black currant, graphite, and spice. Outstanding.

    This was a candidate for wine of the vintage from most of our group. It is quite open in the nose for Ducru with layers of sweet fruit, mocha, graphite and minerals in the mouth. There are firm but ripe tannins. The wine is very balanced and long on the finish. It is dense and powerful but deceptively supple and fleshy. I must buy this wine for my cellar!
