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  2002 Bordeaux Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou  2002 BordeauxRed Wine
Very attractive aromas of fresh berries, raspberries and cherries. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium, refined finish. Lots of finesse. Wines Spectator Rating - 89/91
Another of the top wines of the year, this has good, ripely sweet cassis fruit and tannins that are just ripe enough. There is good concentration here, but none of the jammy character that marks some other 2002s. Wine Magazine Rating: 89-93
