Description

The freshness and fruity framework of a Saint-Julien red wine

The estate

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, the emblematic Cru Classé of Saint-Julien, oversees a prestigious terroir. Over the last 300 years, six families have worked together to ensure that this Cru, with its unrivalled worldwide reputation, continues to shine. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its "beautiful pebbles" (beau caillou) terroir of Günzian gravel. Managed by Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou ranks among the elite of Saint-Julien's great red wines. Vintage after vintage, its wines delight lovers of fine Médoc wines the world over.

The vineyard

What makes Château Ducru-Beaucaillou so special is the exceptional quality of its vineyards. The vines are planted on soils of Günzian and Pyrenean gravel deposited by the Gironde estuary almost two million years ago. These poor soils produce exceptional Saint-Julien wines.

The vintage

There was a lot of rainfall during the winter, allowing the water reserves in the soil to be replenished. Spring and summer were characterised by drought and intense heat. The high temperatures in May were conducive to early and rapid flowering and fruit set. Hot, dry conditions in August slowed down veraison, but were counterbalanced by rains which helped the vineyards and boosted ripening.

Winemaking and ageing

La fermentation a lieu en cuves bois coniques à la pointe de la technologie. Remontages automatiques et doux pouvant être fractionnés sur 24 heures. L’élevage est d’une durée de 18 mois.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (82%)
Merlot (18%)
