"Has an impressive nose, with wonderful aromas of currant, toasty oak and flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. There's lots of new wood in the aftertaste, but also juicy fruit. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Best after 2012." (WS)

"The second wine, the sensational 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou, is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas soar from the glass of this open-knit seductress. A dense ruby/purple color, beautiful full-bodied, lush, expansive flavors, low acidity, and sweet tannin suggest this lovely cuvee should be drunk over the next 12-13 years. It is an amazing sleeper of the vintage!" (WA)
