La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien AOC (Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Saint-Julien GCC 2nd wine)

La Croix de Beaucaillou, which made its debut in 1995, is the second wine produced by Bruno Borie of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, one of the oldest Bordeaux wine producing estates in the Saint-Julien appellation.
This is an exceptional vintage for La Croix, which released a well-concentrated, rich and charming wine, that Steven Spurrier described in Decanter as “No longer a second wine”.
