Fantastic aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants, licorice and walnuts. So St.-Julien. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins that are really long and serious. Like the 1995 Ducru! One for the cellar. Needs at least until after 2028.
Wine Tasting Notes
La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint Julien is the secong label of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou. Opaque purple with exuberant notes of crushed cassis, blackberries and bing cherries accompanied by exotic spices of liquorice, dark chocolate, all spice, and a hint of incense smoke. The full-bodied palate explodes with juicy and sweetly aromatic black fruits, framed by a backbone of finely grained, beautifully polished tannins, and lifted by a tantalizing freshness. The kirsch-cassis juice flavors lead to a long, graphite laced finish. Bold, energetic, and very refined.
