Elegant spices on the nose. A touch of crushed cumin seed and a bit of plum sauce. Dry, dark cocoa powder, purity abounds. Palate is huge and broad. Monolithic fruit and spice. Polished and lifted by very fresh bright acidity. Really something special. A bit of soy sauce salinity to the finish.

Ducru Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is 2ème Grand Cru Classé property in Saint Julien on Bordeaux’s Left Bank. The word “Beaucaillou” translates as "beautiful stones" because of the large pebbles which cover the soils of the estate. This property can trace its roots back to the C13th, making it one of Bordeaux’s most historic estates. Bertrand Ducru purchased the estate in 1795. He added his name to the winery which quickly earned fame under the name of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. Successful Bordeaux wine merchant Francis Borie acquired the estate in 1941 (there is hope for us all!). Since 2003, Bruno Borie has been the proprietor and he is firmly in charge of everything that takes place here. Bruno is largely responsible for the recent stratospheric rise of this estate. The 75 hectare Saint Julien vineyard is planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Some of the vines date back to 1918!
