La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou 2018 – Saint-Julien

The nose is fruity and offers a fine concentration, a fine power as well as a small freshness. It reveals notes of fresh/juicy cassis, juicy raspberry and small notes of juicy blackberry associated with fine hints of lilac, a racy minerality, a very discreet hint of cardamom and toasted. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a juiciness/acidulous frame, a good definition, finesse as well as tension, a certain delicacy, a small minerality and a fine concentration. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy blackberry, juicy raspberry and small notes of ripe/juicy small red berries associated with a touch of blueberry, toasted, chocolate and fine hints of caramelization. Tannins are precise and fine. A wine full of finesse and delicacy full of gourmandize.
