Product Number: 12-80541

Availability: Sufficient



Wine Advocate-Parker : 92/100 Points
The 2014 La Croix de Beaucaillou has enjoyed a purple patch in recent vintages. The nose on the 2014 appeared to have closed down after bottling, but the quality is still tangible, almost sedate, but exquisitely defined tertiary red berry fruit gradually opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and energetic, very focused with superb mineralité. There is just a mote of hardness and rigidity on the finish, but that will be abraded by bottle age (and this is one Deuxième Vin that benefits from bottle maturity).


Grape The blend Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) Merlot (35%) Petit Verdot (5%).
Color Red
Sweetness Dry
Body Full-Bodied
Tasting Note The 2006 Croix de Beaucaillou exhibits slightly herbaceous, sweet cherry and cola notes intermixed with loamy soil and wood nuances. Medium-bodied and tannic, but very good, it will benefit from 1-2 years of cellaring, and should drink well for at least a decade.
