This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

86 Ducru

Drinking at home.

1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou - lovely smoky and woodsy notes, with a hint of coffee, some plum, and leather.  Smooth on the palate with good acidity.  Just beautifully fragrant 15 minutes after decanting.  2½ hours later showing really well with mint and a little more earthy notes.  Tannins much more obvious after aeration.  Still got plenty of life left.
