The unparalleled sophistication of a great red wine from Saint-Julien unveiled by Ducru-Beaucaillou

The estate

An icon of the left bank, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is undoubtedly one of the greatest names in the Bordeaux region. The 2nd Classified Growth of the Official Classification of 1855 embodies the perfect model of a great Saint-Julien. Acquired by the Borie family in 1941, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its extraordinary terroir. Led with great passion and determination by the talented Bruno Borie, Ducru-Beaucaillou today belongs to the elite circle of great Saint-Julien wines.

The vineyard

Situated along the river, the Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard is planted in gravel dating from the Gunz Ice Age. Near the Gironde estuary, the vines benefit from an exceptional microclimate as the river acts as a thermal regulator.

The wine

Le Petit Ducru de Ducru-Beaucaillou is an introduction to the style of its elders, the Grand Vin of Ducru-Beaucaillou and La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou. Endowed with its own style, Le Petit Ducru presents the same attention from the team during the vegetative cycle of the vine, the same uncompromising selection and the same rigorous vinification as the other two wines of the estate.

Blend

Merlot (78%), Cabernet Sauvignon (18%), Petit Verdot (4%).

Aging

After harvest and a bespoke winemaking process, the wine ages for 12 months in Bordeaux barrels, 30% in new wood and 70% in barrels of one previous wine.

Tasting

Color

The 2020 Le Petit Ducru de Ducru-Beaucaillou displays a beautiful, deep purple color.

Nose

The aromatic bouquet is sustained by intense aromas of red and black fruit. Scents of crushed violets are enhanced by a touch of mocha.

Palate

The 2020 Le Petit Ducru de Ducru-Beaucaillou is a generous wine with a velvety texture. The expression of ripe fruits meets a vibrant acidity and the marriage between fruits and spices continues into the finish. This cuvee is impressively refined.
