Croix de Beaucaillou, Saint-Julien, 2009


The second wine of one of the very best second growths from Saint-Julien. Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. A big, dense wine but one which is more accessible at a young age than Ducru-Beaucaillou itself.

Croix de Beaucaillou, 2009, is the second wine of the great second growth from Saint-Julien, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. Croix de Beaucaillou has further proved the quality of the vines and wine-making skill at the château with this wine the grapes of which fail to meet the selection process for the first wine. Croix de Beaucaillou is made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with the remaining 25% consisting exclusively of Merlot. The wine is aged in 60% new oak. Dense purple in colour, this is a big wine brimming with ripe dark fruits and cherries as well as some well-nuanced smoke and vanilla notes along with some tobacco and earthiness. On the palate it is robust yet elegant, with a strong structural core that lends this wine a good capacity to age whilst at the same time being very open and ready to drink young.

According to Robert Parker this was quite possibly the best Croix de Beaucaillou to date, its quality being a reflection of the increasingly stringent selection of the first wine Ducru Beaucaillou and thereby leading to improvements in the second wine's quality.

The 2009 vintage of Croix de Beaucaillou was the first to bear the new label designed by Jade Jagger, daughter of Mick. It only adorned the magnums in 2009 but was used for the standard bottle size from 2010 onwards.
