Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou image

The impressive Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou sits on the banks of the Gironde Estuary in the appellation of Saint-Julien. The 245 hectare estate, with 100 hectares planted with vines, has been owned and operated by the Borie family, who resides at the estate, for over 60 years. The vines have an average age of 35 years and have a root depth of about 6 meters. This allows them to withstand climatic difficulties by penetrating deeper into the earth. The vines are then able to draw more nutrients and water from the soil and the subsoil, thus producing more complex and distinctive wines at Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou. The planting density of the vines plays an equally important role, as it triggers competition among the vines and their roots. The resultant harvest is thus smaller and the vines must be more aggressive in their search for nutrients. Carefully tended and picked only by hand, the vines are treated with extreme care and receive lots of attention. The unique name of Ducru-Beacaillou is derived from the "beau caillou", French for "beautiful stones" which are abundant in the soils of the estate. The Gironde has moderating effect on the climate of the estate creating milder winters and cooler summers, which allows the grapes to have a more homogeneous growing season that favors the production of a "grand vin". Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou wines have a lovely density of fruit, complexity and supple tannins stylistic to the terroir of Saint Julien.
