1970 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St Julien

Brown in color. On the nose, medium intensity, serious development, cardamom, clove, cedar, basement, cigar box, leather, a bit tired but still very beautiful, with lots of earth, and some oak, but not any fruit left. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, silky tannins, balanced, good array of “other” flavors with a nice finish. Tired, but pleasant, I would have like to have met this wine 15 years ago.
