Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou

The second growth Château Ducru-Beaucaillou sits between the village of Beychevelle and the Gironde river's estuary. A magnificent park with centuries-old trees stretches down to the river. The name, given by the former owner Monsieur Ducru, literally and appropriately means "beautiful pebbles". The chief feature of the vineyard is its richness in the pebbles, or "cailloux" which contribute to the greatness of so many wines of the Médoc. This gravel, about 5 meters deep, is on a calcareous base of about the same thickness.

Just before the war, the vineyard became run down and many Bordeaux critics felt it no longer deserved its place as a second growth. In 1942 the Borie family purchased the vineyard and hoisted it to an altitude that it had never known before, receiving top ratings amongst the Second Growths.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, Medoc, Bordeaux WineChateau Ducru Beaucaillou
Château Beaucaillou is usually called Ducru-Beaucaillou from the name of its one-time owner, Mr. Ducru. Its history like that of all the great Médoc growths dates back to the end of the 17th c. and the beginning of the 18th. At the time of the Revolution, the owner was a Mr. Bergeron. Mr. Nathaniel Johnston, from a famous family of Bordeaux wine merchants, bought the estate from the Ducru-Ravez family in 1866. The Johnstons improved it in lavish style. They were at the cutting-edge of technical progress and employed highly competent technical managers and architects of great worth. The two Victorian wings sitting proudly on either side of the Directoire-style chartreuse were built during this period. The vines of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou cover 50-hectares that surround the château building, stretching down the escarpment towards the bank of the Gironde estuary though stopping short of the actual river where the alluvial soils are too fertile for vine production.


Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2014
This powerful wine has a superb mix of the crispest fruit and great structure. Blackberries and black currants shine through the tannins, expressing the liveliness of the vintage. "The 2014 Ducru Beaucaillou showed extremely well when I tasted it with Bruno Borie during en primeur. Now in bottle, it delivers on that promise with beautifully defined blackberry and raspberry fruit infused with cedar and pencil box aromas. Quintessentially Saint Julien. The palate is very well defined with fine tannin, pitch-perfect acidity, a palpable sense of energy and frisson from start to finish that delivers plenty of tobacco-infused fruit. It is not the perfection-flirting legend that I have read elsewhere; it is just a damn good Saint Julien that is going to drink beautifully over the next 25 to 30 years." -Rated 96, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
