With a producer like Ducru Beaucaillou, a wine which is often burly, tannic and difficult to understand in its youth, aging is highly recommended and the results are often magical. The library release of 1989 is a tremendous opportunity for the lover of mature Bordeaux. Obtained directly from the Chateau, where they were reconditioned in an oxygen-free environment, and topped off with '89 Ducru Beaucaillou. Finally, with each bottle tested, new corks and labels were applied. The best days are ahead, as this has only just entered its drinking window. ✦ ducru Beaucaillou St. Julien 1989 wS 92 » $189 "So long and beautiful. Why wait? But it has a long life ahead..." (113400) a lesson in The classics W ith one of the longest histories in the Medoc, Leoville Las Cases has defined the importance of the 2nd Growth classification. The style of Bordeaux has changed quite a bit, becoming a richer and bigger wine over the last two decades, yet Leoville Las Cases remains the same, and makes an excellent argument for the traditional style of St. Julien. Leoville Las Cases is not only one of the best values in the region, but also one of the most sound investments. It truly is a 2nd Growth that drinks (and matures) like a 1st. ✦ leoville las cases st.

There may not be any First Growths in St. Julien, yet the Chateaux found here make up for that in spades. Primarily made from Cabernet Sauvignon, here you'll fnd Bordeaux of longevity and power.
