Product Description

"The selection process under proprietor Bruno Borie is so severe at Ducru Beaucaillou that readers should be giving serious attention to the second wine, Croix de Beaucaillou, which sports a dramatic black and gold label. The 2011 exhibits attractive black currant and black cherry fruit, medium body, silky tannins and a lush, round, up-front appeal. Enjoy it over the next decade." ~Robert Parker

"Offers a vivid bolt of dark currant and blackberry fruit, lined with briar, ganache and tar notes that drive the finish along. Packed but sleek, showing good energy overall. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2016 through 2027." ~Wine Spectator, 90 Points
 
"No longer a second wine of Ducru Beaucaillou but a growth in its own right, this is a powerful wine, very dense and muscular. Rich berry fruits push through the firm structure to give a wine that will become opulent as it develops. Drink from 2018." ~Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points
