Description

The elegance and richness of an Haut-Médoc wine

The estate

An icon of the Left Bank, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is undoubtedly one of the greatest names in the Bordeaux region. The 2nd Cru Classé in the Official Classification of 1855 embodies the perfect model of a great Saint-Julien. Château Ducru-Beaucaillou was acquired by the Borie family in 1941 and takes its name from its extraordinary terroir. Ducru-Beaucaillou is managed with brilliance and determination by the talented Bruno Borie and belongs to the elite of the great Saint-Julien wines.

The vineyard

Deposited along the river, the gravels dating from the Günz ice age have forged the identity of the terroir of the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard. Located near the Gironde estuary, the vines that produce this Haut-Médoc wine benefit from an exceptional microclimate and the river's role as a thermal regulator.

The vintage

A very rainy winter and April preceded a warm May which advanced early and rapid flowering and fruit setting. Heavy rainfall at the end of June was offset by three heat waves between June and August. Although the summer drought slowed down the veraison and contained the accumulation of sugars, it favoured optimal ripening of the grapes. The rainy spells in the second half of August saved the vineyard, guaranteeing a gradual ripening of the grapes.

Winemaking and ageing

Ageing for 18 months.

Assemblage

Merlot (66%)
