Description

The Power and Finesse of a Lively Saint-Julien

Truly an emblem of the Saint-Julien appellation, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the essential references for those who love the great wines of Bordeaux.

A brand in its own right, La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is more than just the second wine of the property. With a plot that is exclusively dedicated to this cru, home to an exceptional terroir of Günzian gravel, La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou has established itself as a different kind of Médoc wine with its own well-recognised label.

In spite of the episodes of frost that hit the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard, the climatic conditions that followed made it possible for the fruit to achieve an excellent phenolic potential and perfect ripeness in time for the harvest.

Made from a blend dominated by Merlot (58%) and complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (39%) and Petit Verdot (3%), the La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2017 presents a vibrant, intensely fruity profile. This wine charms the taster immediately with its dark purple colour and black core. The wine displays a beautiful bouquet, revealing pure aromas of blackcurrant and ripe plum, punctuated with notes of black cherry liquor. Swirling the glass reveals notes of freshly cut tobacco leaves and roasted aromas, reminiscent of delicious chocolate and coffee beans. Powerful and perfectly structured, the palate delivers with elegance and a perfect tannin-acidity balance, while the finish offers a generous length, punctuated with notes of small red fruits. A lively and very seductive Saint Julien.
