Exceptional wine: Ch. Ducluzeau

I like going to the Icelandic Monopole and talking to the wine guy´s. A lot of times they will show me a good but forgotten wine, that doesn´t seem to sell and is hidden on the bottom shelf but is worth every krona and then some. One of those wines is without a doubt Chateau Duclezeau from Listrac-Medoc in Bordeaux, France.

Listrac is not as well known as most of the other areas in Bordeaux but they make some really good wines that can keep for years and their their top wines are often a better deal than some of the wines from neighbour areas. I don´t expect this wine to last long in the Monopole so I would suggest buying a bottle or two, while you have the chance.

Chateau Ducluzeau 2016 from Listrac is a powerful and heavy wine with lots of bell pepper, paprika, blackcurrants and coffee on the nose. The palate is heavy and comælex with lots of coffee, peppers, oak, black fruits og tannin. The balance of the fruits and tannins is superb and the aftertaste is long and steady. This is a wine you can drink now but it will be much more mature after 7 to 10 years in storage. The price is quite good at 4.299 kr.. To be sure this is a steak og leg of lamb wine and would be good on any holiday table.
