We enjoyed it together with friends. I drank it with my best friend.
Outstanding cherry colour with a low layer. The wine mainly smells like roses. Good taste, light wine.

La Croix de Beaucaillou 2012
La Croix de Beaucaillou is the second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou.
Ducru-Beaucaillou Château owes its name not only to the soil characteristics of the terroir, but also to Bertrand Ducru who acquired it in 1795.
The 75 hectares of vineyards Ducru-Beaucaillou lie in the municipality of Saint-Julien, on the edge of the Gironde, making him eligible for a protective microclimate regulator. The vines of the vineyard is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot 30%.
The wines are aged in oak barrels (20 to 40% new) for 12 months.
This 2012 vintage is about 50% of production. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.
On an intense color of ruby, plum reflections, it offers a flexible nose of blackcurrant on a background of vanilla, sprinkled with light notes reflecting perfectly the terroir. Round and medium-bodied, it will accompany your feast without difficulty during the next decade.

Ducru-Beaucaillou also produced The Little Pebble.

A wine to drink with your family.
Ripe cherry colour, medium opacity. Cedarwood aromas. I don't know how to describe it, but to me it had a good taste.
The best of the meal was this wine.

This is the wine we always order at the restaurant we usually go.
Opaque red. Aromas of oak. Strong coffee flavour.
