La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is a terrific Bordeaux wine made by the illustrious Château Ducru-Beaucaillou from an estate vineyard owned by the Famille Eugene Borie. Powerful, silky, and very aromatic, La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou beguiles with its bouquet, balance, finesse and long finish. A great cuvée that stimulates, then captivates the senses; it is the perfect introduction to the Borie signature style. Made of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot.  

Ducru-Beaucaillou's 75 hectares are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot Noir. The average age of the vines is 35. Over time, fertility is moderated and a root network develops (reaching up to 6 metres deep), both reducing the effect of climatic excess and increasing the take-up of nutrients from the soil and subsoil. Meticulously exploring the poor, arid soil to find the necessary nutrients and water, the roots carry back the trace elements which give the wine its uniqueness: this is the essence of the terroir of Ducru-Beaucaillou.

Barrel Sample. From vines within the Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard this is a major wine in its own right. It is generous in rich in blackberry flavors, serious tannins and a complex balance between acidity and ripe fruitiness. It will obviously age well. 94-96

The second wine of this great château is the 2019 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou, which is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot that was raised in 60% new barrels. It fits into the lineup beautifully and sits nicely between the Le Petit Ducru and the Grand Vin. Deep purple-hued, with full-bodied aromas and flavors of pure cassis, crushed stone, graphite, lead pencil, and smoked tobacco, it has building yet fine tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. It shows the more regal, classy, elegant, yet still concentrated style of this vintage perfectly. Give bottles a healthy decant if drinking any time soon, and it will have upwards of two decades of prime drinking. Best After 2022.

The 2019 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is a powerful, explosive wine. Black cherry, chocolate, leather and licorice flow effortlessly across the palate, lifted by pretty floral notes that appear with air. Fleshy, dark and beautifully resonant, La Croix has a ton to offer.

Rich aromas of cassis, licorice, cigar wrapper, loamy soil and creamy new oak introduce Bruno Borie's 2019 La Croix de Beaucaillou, a full-bodied, deep and concentrated wine that's rich and lively, with a fleshy core of fruit and plenty of fine, chalky tannin. Like for example Clos du Marquis and Les Forts de Latour, La Croix de Beaucaillou isn't a second wine per se, but rather a cuvée produced from dedicated parcels.
