2014 La Croix De Beaucaillou 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 92 points
Drink by: 2021 - 2040
The 2014 La Croix de Beaucaillou has enjoyed a purple patch in recent vintages. The nose on the 2014 appeared to have closed down after bottling, but the quality is still tangible, almost sedate, but exquisitely defined tertiary red berry fruit gradually opens in the glass.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and energetic, very focused with superb mineralite. There is just a mote of hardness and rigidity on the finish, but that will be abraded by bottle age (and this is one Deuxieme Vin that benefits from bottle maturity).
One of the most iconic estate from St. Julien, Ducru Beaucaillou belongs to the 2nd growth classification and is regarded as a Super Second. It took its name from one of its then owner, Bertrand Ducru who purchased the estate in 1795, and from its unique terroir.
The word Beaucaillou means beautiful stones referring to the large-stone gravel beds of Ducru Beaucaillou.
