A fruity and balanced Saint-Julien wine

The estate

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is an emblematic Cru Classé of Saint-Julien and overseeing a prestigious terroir. Over the past 300 years, six families have worked to make this world-renowned cru shine. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of "beaux cailloux" (beautiful stones) made up of Günzian gravel. Managed by Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou ranks among the elite of the great red wines of Saint-Julien. Vintage after vintage, it delights lovers of great Médoc wines throughout the world.

The vineyard

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou’s unique character lies in the exceptional quality of its vineyard located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank. The vines are planted on soils of Günzian and Pyrenean gravel deposited by the Gironde estuary nearly two million years ago. These poor soils produce great Saint-Julien wines.

The vintage

A mild, rainy winter preceded a mild, dry spring. Flowering began at the end of May and lasted throughout June. A hot summer, broken up by restorative storms, advanced rapid development of the vines. Harvested during the first two weeks of September under very hot conditions, the grapes were healthy, perfectly ripe with very fine tannins.
