Description

The freshness and power of a fruit-forward Saint-Julien

A "shocking" vintage. These are the terms used by Bruno-Eugène Borie to describe the 2018 vintage at the prestigious Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. 2018 was shocking because of the new standard that it represents, similar to the great vintages of 1945 or 1961 before it, but also because of the emotions it brings to the tasting.

After a rainy and difficult spring, the beautiful summer settled with plenty of radiant sunshine, which persisted until the date of the harvest. The harvest gave rise to an exceptional vintage. Through a long vegetative cycle, the grapes were able to reach a perfect level of ripeness, presenting a small size, thick skins and beautifully ripe pips.

The Grand Vin of the estate, the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2018 rewards the work of the technical teams. Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Merlot (15%), the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2018 offers a magnificent expression of the great terroir of Saint-Julien on the left bank of Bordeaux.

At the tasting, the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2018 presents an intense, dark red and purple colour. The aromatic bouquet is dazzling, springing from the glass to reveal notes of black fruits, punctuated by delicate floral fragrances, especially violet. Swirling the glass reveals beautifully mineral graphite notes. The palate is sumptuous, captivating with its voluminous texture and presenting great class, along with a perfect structure of refined and polished tannins. The tasty palate is enhanced by juicy fruit and a great freshness. Balanced by a crisp acidity, the wine persists for a long time until the finish. A true masterpiece, the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2018 is in line with the most exceptional vintages, which will undoubtedly mark the history of the estate. A vintage surely made to survive the decades ahead of it.
