La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2015
This famous Grand Cru Classé occupies a unique wine-growing site in the eastern part of the AOC Saint-Julien area. The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
It has a floral note on the nose: small black cherries, blueberry and wilted violets, the last becoming more intense as the initially tight-fisted wine opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. There is very well-judged acidity and its texture is harmonious and silky smooth.
