The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou wine is alluring, seductive style, with mulled fig and boysenberry fruit carried by velvety structure. The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou has a very composed bouquet that captures the fruité of the vintage, almost lush, pure black cherries intermingling with cranberry and blueberry. There is a patina of new oak to be subsumed so it will certainly deserve three or four years in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, cloaked by layers of slightly toasty black fruit laced with cedar, white pepper and a touch of Lapsang Souchong. This St-Julien wine is very harmonious with great depth while maintaining superb precision on the finish. What a superb deuxième vin. The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou wine is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
Anticipated maturity: 2021 – 2040.
