La Croix de Beaucaillou Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This represented 55% of the production and now, under Bruno Borie, comes from the same vineyard almost every year. (The vineyard is on the other side of the Route du Vin, separating Beaucaillou from estates such as St.-Pierre, Branaire-Ducru and Gloria.) Sweet mulberry and boysenberry fruit intermixed with licorice, forest floor and earth are followed by an opulently textured, fleshy wine that is dense and *outstanding*. I joked with Bruno Borie that the second wine is probably better than many of the Ducru Beaucaillous produced in the 1970s. It should drink well for 10-15 years."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (90-92 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*

85% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot. Aged for 12 months in 60% new oak barrels, the balance in one year-old barrels. 13.7% alcohol. No longer a second wine', the vineyards for Croix de Beaucaillou are smack between Gruaud Larose and Leoville Barton. ... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 La Croix de Beaucaillou 3000ml
