The wines of the Saint-Julien commune in Bordeaux are known to be boisterous and mineral-forward. Notes of cedar and cassis often shine through in wines from this wonderful area. They are often accompanied by a variety of red and dark fruits that not only complement the minerality, but elevate it. The same is true for the beautiful La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien.
This wine is lovingly created with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and is bold, acidic, and dry. The tannins are quite mature and balance the acidity well, while a slight, coy sweetness counters the dryness of the wine, but not overwhelmingly so. To the eye: the wine presents beautiful, deep reds with purple hues observed in the right light. On the nose: notes of cassis, stone, plums, and blackcurrant are noted with spices and oak shining through. On the palate: the wine presents maturity and elegance in every sip. Delicious red and dark fruits can be observed - blackberry, plum, and cherry at the front, with notes of vanilla, cassis, and cinnamon towards the back. The finish is long and enjoyable, with a plethora of characteristics presented.
This beautiful creation is best enjoyed with rich braised meats and stews. It also pairs perfectly with grilled beef and pork.
