Marks and reviews
Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is an emblematic Cru Classé of Saint-Julien and overseeing a prestigious terroir. Over the past 300 years, six families have worked to make this world-renowned cru shine. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of "beaux cailloux" (beautiful stones) made up of Günzian gravel. Managed by Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou ranks among the elite of the great red wines of Saint-Julien. Vintage after vintage, it delights lovers of great Médoc wines throughout the world.
Château Ducru-Beaucaillou’s unique character lies in the exceptional quality of its vineyard located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank. The vines are planted on soils of Günzian and Pyrenean gravel deposited by the Gironde estuary nearly two million years ago. These poor soils produce great Saint-Julien wines.
A mild and particularly rainy winter advanced a relatively early budburst. Flowering was recorded at the beginning of June, before an ideal summer, combining sunshine and heat. The cooler, wetter conditions of September did not affect the ripening of the grapes until the harvest.
Cabernet Sauvignon (65%)
Petit Verdot (5%)
Cabernet Franc (4%)
The colour is a subtle carmine red.
The nose is intense, mingling blackcurrant, leather and vanilla scents.
Dense and structured, the palate unveils silky tannins which draw out to a finish with a lovely length.
For the best tasting, it is recommended decanting this wine two hours before serving, between 16°C and 18°C.
