Winemaker's Notes

The La Croix de Beaucaillou is the second wine of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, a Grand Cru classified in 1855. La Croix de Beaucaillou is subjected to a reasoned blending aimed at producing a wine which will reveal its assets earlier than Ducru-Beaucaillou. However, it still embodies the characteristics of a great Saint Julien: elegance, finesse and the ability to age.

"Lots of fresh berry and blackberry aromas, with vanilla undertones. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins and a long, caressing finish. Tight and structured, building on the palate. Very good for a second wine. From Ducru. Best after 2010."
