La Croix Ducru Beaucaillou '18


James Suckling: 94 Points

The Wine Advocate: 92 Points

Tasting Notes: A focused and compact nose that first reveals kirsch and blueberry coulis, with nuances of cloves, Bourbon vanilla, dried black ink and smoky graphite
slowly unfurling in the glass. The palate is composed of a dense core with a
backbone of very fine-grained tannins enveloped in rich fruits, giving a suave
silky texture to the wine. A vein of saline freshness weaves through the fruit
and underscores the lingering spicy fruit finish. A wine with pedigree and panache. 

ABV: 14% / Varieties: 66% Merlot Noir - 32% Cabernet Sauvignon - 2% Petit Verdot / Origin: Bordeaux, France
