Version Française Assemblage : 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot

Le Figaro Vin, 2010 : 17,5/20

Attaque souple et douce, du moelleux, jolie matière suave, pas la droiture habituelle, plus Saint-Julien, supérieur à 2006 et 2007, très forte structure.

Gault & Millau, Guide 2011 : 18,5/20


English Version Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (194), May 2011: 95/100

One of the stars of the vintage, and a remarkable achievement in 2008, with impressive richness, this dense purple colored wine is almost as opaque as the 2010. Spring flowers, crushed rocks, creme de cassis and some subtle oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine that transcends the vintage character in its power, richness, and aging potential. It also exhibits tremendous precision, purity, and depth of character. It is more forward than the 2010 is likely to be, but probably not as sumptuous as the 2009 will turn out to be. This is a wine to buy. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.

James Suckling, Wine Spectator, April 2009: 90-93/100

Fabulous nose of crushed blackberries, minerals and raspberries, with hints of licorice. Full, with very fine tannins and a racy finish. I love the precision of the tannins and the long finish.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2009: 17/20

85% Cabernet Sauvignon. 90% new oak. Seven different coopers. Only 35 out of an estate total of 100ha goes into this wine now, though it used to be much more (before La Croix existed as a distinct entity). Impressive density with a pale purple rim. Aromatic and dry but with a lot of rich, velvety mass in the middle. Pretty impressive! Marginally flashy but really makes a splash. Dry finish. Very firm with lots of dry tannin. Pretty confident and savoury.. Wait! Ambitious. Very 'masculine'.

Château Ducru Beaucaillou-2ème Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Saint Julien
Château Ducru Beaucaillou

Situated, as the name suggests, on an outcrop of deep graves and stretching over 50 hectares, this is one of the most beautiful sites of the Medoc. Planted with 65% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% of Merlot, 5% of Cabernet Franc and 5% of Petit Verdot, this domaine is considered by many to be the quintessence of Bordeaux, particularly the Medoc. Attentive care by the owner, Bruno Borie, meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and an uncompromising selection of fruit is the key to this supremely elegant and balanced wine that often needs ten years of so before revealing its full character.
