    2012 Saint-Julien Deuxieme Cru Classe

    Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is perched on a gorgeous Medoc site with an incredible view on Gironde estuaryChateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2012 release is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

    The Saint-Julien 2e Cru Classe reveals a lovely dark ruby hue. The nose exudes red fruits such as blackcurrant. The palate offers a fruity attack with smooth, tense tannins carrying pleasant acidity. The 2012 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is well-structured, full, and perfectly balanced.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Bordeaux 2012 Southwold tasting. The 2012 Ducru Beaucaillou was broody and stubborn on the nose: the fruit remaining off-stage while earthy, leathery notes take the limelight. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a tart entry, a keen line of acidity here that lends this energy, a sense of frisson. It settles down as it approaches the finish, gaining harmony all the time with a smooth, lightly spiced finish that lingers in the mouth. It needs time but it will repay you. Tasted January 2016.
