La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2010

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 12 Bottles (75cl)

2010 Saint-Julien from Bordeaux.

The 2010 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. This Saint-Julien displays a purple-tinted dark red colour. The nose is dominated by dark fruits such as black cherry and blackberry. On the palate, a strong structure is followed by a remarkable persistence. The 2010 Croix de Beaucaillou is a charming wine that will satisfy experts.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Coming from a totally separate vineyard, this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot sports a dramatic label designed by Jade Jagger, the daughter of rock legend Mick. The wine is richly fruity, lush, fleshy, very flamboyant, and seems to have more in common with the 2009 vintage than the more structured, backward and restrained 2010s. The wine is medium to full-bodied, luscious and best drunk over the next 10-15 years.
