La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou, Saint-Julien 2015Regular price €95.00
La Croix comes from a separate vineyard on the Ducru-Beaucaillou estate, and thus is not so much a second wine as a cuvée in its own right.
‘I cannot think how it could be improved. This is such a detailed wine with so much fruit integrity it is amazing and I have never tasted anything like it from this property. It follows that I am honour-bound to award this delicious wine a perfect score.’
20+/20 Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com, April 2019
‘The 2018 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is an outrageously beautiful, vivid wine. Gravel, crushed rocks, menthol, lavender, espresso, licorice and dark spice all infuse a racy, sumptuous Saint-Julien loaded with personality and class. In 2018 La Croix is especially fine. Ample, voluptuous and racy to the core, the 2018 is stunning in its beauty…’
