    Description

    The intense aromas and delicious flavors of a fine red wine from Saint-Julien by Ducru-Beaucaillou

    The estate
    An iconic Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou reigns over a prestigious terroir. In the past 300 years, six families have worked ceaselessly to elevate this estate to the international reputation it enjoys today. A property of the Borie family since 1941, the Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of “beautiful pebbles” made up of Gunzian gravel. Under the leadership of Bruno Borie, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s wines have delighted fans of Médoc fine wines around the world.

    The wine

    Produced from a plot-by-plot selection of vines from Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou offers a unique expression of the great terroir of Saint-Julien. This "high-flying" cuvée is made from vines located to the east, center and west of the AOC Saint-Julien.

    The vineyard
    The singular nature of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is due to the exceptional quality of its vineyard. The vines are planted on Gravel Gunzian and Pyrenean soils deposited by the river almost two million years ago. Out of these lean and poor soils come exceptional wines. The proximity of the Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard to the Gironde estuary provides natural protection against the vagaries of the weather.

    The aging

    12 months in Bordeaux-style French oak barrels, 60% new oak, 40% barrels of one previous wine.

    The blend
    Cabernet sauvignon (50%), merlot (46%), petit verdot (4%).

    The tasting
    Tasted as a wine future, the La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2019 presents a deep cherry-black color. The wine immediately charms the nose with floral and jammy black fruit aromas. Toasted and vanilla notes appear after aeration. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its freshness and delicacy. Upon attack, the wine caresses the palate with its round material and deliciously polished tannins. The palate is quite delicious, revealing notes of black and red fruits, along with slightly woody and toasted notes. The finish is quite persistent and very generous.
