Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 201 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou has a very seductive bouquet of plush
black cherry and raspberry preserves and a touch of Earl Grey. This is very
nuanced and poised, showing a touch of cedar in the background. The
palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, and again, a little stricter than
previous vintages thanks to the higher Cabernet Sauvignon. Classic in
style, displaying fine sapidity, a touch of piquancy toward the finish and a
persistent saline aftertaste. Very fine.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 90-92/100
Complex aromas of dark berries, sweet spices, licorice, cigar wrapper and loamy soil introduce the 2021 La Croix de Beaucaillou, a medium to full-bodied, seamless and layered wine that exhibits promising depth, concentration and structure in this challenging vintage. It’s a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot—in other words, it contains at lot more Cabernet than usual.
