Sokolin 1983 Ducru Beaucaillou Tasting Notes:

Wine is probably one of the best things that nature and people were able to create together. The most astounding Ducru Beaucaillou bottle came from the wonderful French vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, two of the most delicious wine grapes in the world.

There's no other wine capable of such a powerful explosion like this fabulous vintage. Uncorking the bottle means letting an extraordinary bouquet fill the space around you, spreading its wings and finding its way to your nose, making your reach for a glass right away. Some things are just meant to be put off. Some things should be enjoyed right now, despite their aging potential. This wine certainly has it, but it's just too lavish to let it go - the impeccable structure and delightful flavor won't allow you to.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Ducru: With a name that tells stories of wonderful terroir and a long history of success, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is a picturesque example of a great Bordeaux winery. Their wines bring to mind endless fantasy stories of heroism, valor, and love, pulling at your heartstrings as they massage your tastebuds in a veritable crimson tidal wave. A sip of this wine is an explosion of intense black fruits, flowers, and noble earth overwhelms your senses in a way you never thought possible before. Wine like this is best taken in slowly, as you experience a myriad of different sensations and thoughts while examining the texture and flavor profile. You can almost hear the voice of the terroir, and taste the raw passion and talent of the winemakers.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
