La Croix de Ducru-Beaucaillou 2020, Saint-Julien

On the nose, fruity, elegant, distinguished, with a fine texture, subtle potency, and a fine airy character. It reveals notes of bright black currant, morello cherry and touches of dense wild blackberry combined with hints of dark berries, violet, plum blossom, graphite as well as hints of vanilla, mocha, subtle hints of toasted hazelnut and discreet touch of bourbon vanilla. On the palate, fruity with juiciness, gourmandize, good definition, minerality, a certain freshness with a little tension, and an airy character. The wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy blackcurrant, juicy/fresh wild blackberry and touches of morello cherry combined with bits of bright black berries as well as hints of graphite/wet stone, camphor, star anise and fine mocha, a subtle hint of green cardamom and a very discreet hint of roasted coffee. The tannins are fine, elegant and slightly creamy. A nice work of bitters on the finish that brings an imperceptible touch of eucalyptus. A subtle hint of toasted hazelnut on the persistence.
