One of the greatest wines of Saint-Julien. The 50 ha of Ducru based in the south of the appellation are planted to a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%), and an equal portion of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It is a very impressive, classically structured example of the appellation: always elegant, very intense, with subtle cedar and dark fruit underpinned by finely integrated oak. It requires patience and cellaring. From the current crop of excellent vintages 2010, 09, 06, 05, 03, 00, 98, 96 and 95 were exemplary but 97 was something of a disappointment.
