The La Croix de Beaucaillou 2014 is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot that is raised in 60% new oak. This needs a few minutes to settle down in the glass, which is no problem since Bruno and I always have a good natter about the vintage. There is a sense of nonchalance on the nose, nothing too extravagant, quite “contained” compared to recent vintages but clearly with good concentration that will be more evident post-bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with dense tannin, a little powdery in texture, but I like the symmetry and focus defining the finish. Great potential, though it will require 4 to 5 years to fully assimilate that new oak. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

Sweet tobacco, dried seaweed and blackcurrants. Full body, velvety textured tannins and an intense finish. Muscular and serious.

A touch more spice here on the nose, which is clean, precise and focussed. Clean and bright in the mouth: there is some energy here, and again that clean and pure ripeness. A touch of structure in the finish, this is very good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
