Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

A magnificent property overlooking the Garonne from the heights of the Saint-Julien appellation, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou enjoys a reputation that is no longer to be proven. 

The history of Château Beaucaillou dates back to the 13th century, but it was not until 1795 that it began to make a name for itself, when it was acquired by Bertrand Ducru, who added his name to it.

The pinnacle was reached when it was crowned Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, during the famous classification of Médoc wines. The Victorian-style building of Château as we know it today was completed at the end of the 19th century, under the aegis of its then owner Nathaniel Johnston, a merchant from Bordeaux. Since 1941, it has belonged to the Borie family, Bruno-Eugène Borie being today the third generation to raise it ever higher in excellence.

The 75-hectare vineyard is planted on an exceptional terroir, the soils being composed of gravel close to the Gironde estuary, which allows the vines to be protected from frost thanks to thermal regulation. This terroir is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, 70% of which is planted at optimum ripeness, and Merlot, 30%. The wines are aged for 18 months in oak barrels, 60% of which are new.

Description Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2009.

La robe of this wine is brilliant, limpid, poppy in color with very slight orange highlights. On the nose, a complex aromatic bouquet of jammy fruit such as black cherry and plum, violet, menthol and dark chocolate quickly emerges. The palate is rich and powerful. The opulent body is marked by dense yet velvety tannins.
