2020 Ducru-Beaucaillou "Croix de Beaucaillou," St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539497 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark So much purity and definition, this is a beautiful wine with clarity of flavour. Touches of grilled almond and rosemary, mocha, smoke and coffee bean, there is so much freshness, with juice rushing in between the muscles and a mint leaf finish. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really serious. It’s full-bodied, tight and linear with fantastic length. Racy, so fine and intense. Very fine tannins. One of the best Croix Ducru. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark It's a much more concentrated, structured wine offering classic cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with notes of scorched earth, tobacco, graphite, and chocolate. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a great mid-palate as well as the vintage's rich, deep, powerful style. It's going to have some up-front appeal given its balance as well as the quality of the tannins, but this is a serious wine for reserving 2-4 years in the cellar, and it should easily have 15-20 years of prime drinking. Inner quote mark (5/2021)
