La Croix de Beaucaillou
Second Wine from Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou
Varietal: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Merlot
Wine making: Made from the property’s youngest vines, it benefits from the wine making experience lavished on the first wine.
Tasting Notes: With an attractive color, it shows a good balance between the fruit and the oak. Delicate and nicely made, it has muted tannins and a bouquet made of flowers and spices. Harmonious and well-balanced, it is very rich in the mouth…
The density of this second wine is impressive. Very promising, it will age very well. A wine that is very satisfying right now.
Food Pairing: Enjoy with your finest cuisine
