    A balanced Saint-Julien red wine

    The Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is a Saint-Julien wine. This is the second wine from the estate. It is a 75-hectare estate that offers a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.

    At tasting, there is a dark purple color. On the nose, the wine expresses a lovely bouquet with blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fragrances. On the palate, the Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2012 is structured and balanced. The tannins envelop the wine with great roundness and power. This Saint-Julien is very seductive vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Bordeaux 2012 Southwold tasting. The 2012 La Croix de Beaucaillou has a reserved but clean and focused bouquet of earthy black fruit, tobacco and a touch of bay leaf. It just needs a little more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is an attractive pencil lead note, fine balance with quite a long tail on the finish. This is another very satisfying deuxième vin from Bruno Borie, if not quite up there with the very best that he has produced in recent years. Tasted January 2016.
