More Vintages and Sizes of Ducru-Beaucaillou - La Croix de Beaucaillou:
Author: Robert Parker
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. There's lots of new wood in the aftertaste, but also juicy fruit. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou.

Awesome as usual, my 3rd encounter with the legendary 2005 vintage. Classic roasted coffee nose, intense cherry, currants, licorice and mint with crushed rocks. The palate is intense and youthful, drinking well now but easily has another 15 years. Ripe tannins are full bodied with good grip. #2005 #DUCRUbeaucaillou #Bordeaux

Delicious and graceful. Needs a 1-2 hr. decant to show its stuff.

A bit muted at first. Then slowly showing medoc character of cassis, cherries and pencil. Super acidity and very firm tannin structure. Wait at least 5 years to check in again. Excellent potential and very good value.
