Description

The concentration and smoothness of a fine Saint-Julien red wine

The estate

An iconic Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou reigns over a prestigious terroir. In the past 300 years, six families have worked ceaselessly to elevate this estate to the international reputation it enjoys today. A property of the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of “beautiful pebbles” made up of Gunzian gravel. Under the leadership of Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s wines have delighted lovers of Médoc wines in all four corners of the world.

The vineyard

A particularity of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is the exceptional quality of its vineyard. The vines are planted in Günzian and Pyrenean gravel soils deposited by the Gironde estuary nearly two million years ago. From these poor soils, exceptional Saint-Julien wines are born.

Vinification and ageing

Ageing lasts 18 months, exclusively in new French oak barrels. Ullage is carried out regularly during the first six months of ageing, as well as à l'esquive rackings every three months, with a total of seven rackings during the ageing process.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (98%)

Merlot (2%).

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2021: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

This wine showcases a beautiful inky colour.

Nose

Pure and concentrated, the nose mixes fragrances of crème de cassis with floral (fresh violet) and fruity (blackberry, blueberry) notes. When aerated, notes of exotic spices, cedar, cigar box and smoked graphite emerge.

Palate

Silky and very precise, the palate is seduced by this wine’s fine tannins, its freshness and its vivacity. The palate gradually develops a power that stretches to a persistent and vibrant finish.
