An iconic Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Chateau 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, the Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of “beautiful pebbles” made up of Gunzian gravel. Under the leadership of Bruno Borie, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s wines have delighted fans of the Medoc around the world.
The singular nature of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is due to the exceptional quality of its vineyard. The vines are planted on Gravel Gunzian and Pyrenean soils deposited by the river almost two million years ago. From these lean and poor soils come exceptional wines. The proximity of the Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard to the Gironde estuary provides natural protection against the vagaries of the weather.
