The second wine the sensational 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas soar from the glass of this open-knit seductress. A dense ruby/purple color beautiful full-bodied lush expansive flavors low acidity and sweet tannin suggest this lovely cuvee should be drunk over the next 12-13 years. It is an amazing sleeper of the vintage

Has an impressive nose with wonderful aromas of currant toasty oak and flowers. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish.

Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. There's lots of new wood in the aftertaste but also juicy fruit. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Best after 2012.

Deep garnet in color, the 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou is boldly aromatic and shows what age can do in a beautiful vintage. The nose is full of aromas of dried cherry, orange marmalade, saddle leather, dusty earth, and toasted almond. On the palate, the wine is lithe and bright with soft tannins and flavors of fruit leather, plum, Tahitian vanilla, soy, and a distinct sanguine note. This is a classic, feminine St Julien that is drinking beautifully right now. Drink now-2023+
