    A fresh and complex Saint-Julien wine

    The La Croix de Beaucaillou is the second wine of Château Ducru-Breaucaillou that is produced in the Saint-Julien appellation. Its blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot.

    La Croix de Beaucaillou 2006 presents a beautiful red colour. Its nose exudes a rich bouquet of various liqueur and blackberry aromas. On the palate, the wine is fleshy and voluptuous with beautiful freshness and complex flavours. The finish shows a wonderful length and an excellent fruitiness.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted at the château, the 2006 La Croix de Beaucaillou is now fully matured on the nose, but it has surprising intensity with plenty of tar-tinged black fruit, kirsch and roasted herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, well-judged acidity, still quite structured and masculine in style, but with admirable weight on the licorice finish. Give this another couple of years: a bit rustic but deserving attention as it is in that lovely stage between primary and secondary stages. Tasted May 2016.
