The smoothness and aromatic finesse of a fine Saint-Julien red wine

The estate

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is an iconic Saint-Julien Cru Classé and watches over an illustrious terroir. Over the past 300 years, six families have tirelessly worked towards making this wine, with an unrivalled worldwide reputation, shine. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou’s name, "beautiful pebbles", is a reference to its terroir made up of Günzian gravel. Managed by Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is at the pinnacle of the finest Saint-Julien wines. Year after year, the estate brings great pleasure to the lovers of fine Médoc wines throughout the world.

The vineyard

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou’s distinctiveness lies in the exceptional quality of its vineyard. 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 exceptional wines.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (73%)

Merlot (27%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep purple-colored 1999 Ducru Beaucaillou, which represents 60% of the crop, offers aromas of crushed stones, raspberry liqueur, and black currants. This sweet, pure, and harmonious wine possesses elegance, finesse, and multiple nuances rather than power, concentration, and structure. This is Bordeaux at its finest. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.
