La Croix de Beaucaillou 2015

$180.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

"The style of Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of elegance combvined with the balance and fruit character one expects from St-Julien. The Léovilles can be more powerfully structured, and Gruaud-Larose occasionally richer, but Ducru-Beaucaillou leads with its finesse and length and freshness on the finish."

"These are wines that are generally slow to develop, needing a good ten years before all components are in tune..."
