90-91 points James Suckling

  Aromas of plums and berries with hints of chocolate and spice. Medium to full body, with firm tannins and a chocolate and berry undertone. Well done. Second wine of Ducru.   (4/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  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! (RP)   (4/2008)

91 points Wine Spectator

  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. Best after 2012.   (3/2008)

Decanter

  Masses of colour, concentrated blackcurrant fruit, succulent, spicy and grippy, more depth than expected.   (4/2006)

Jancis Robinson

  Produced from much lower-yielding vines than Lalande Borie. Scented, fragrant, soft, very fruity. Rather sumptuous -- full and round and sweet. 17/20 points. Drink 2015-2022.   (4/2006)
