Description

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou was classified as a second growth in the historic Bordeaux Classification of 1855. It is one of the most famous Chateau in the St Julien wine-growing appellation. It famously sports a bright orange label.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is a majestic, Victorian-style castle, which has, over time, become one of the great symbols of the Médoc. The estate was purchased by Francois Borie in 1941. Today, the estate is managed by Jean Eugène Borie SA, which is owned by Mrs Borie, her daughter Sabine Coiffe and her son Bruno-Eugène, the CEO since 2003, and the third generation of the Borie family to head the estate. The family also own two other famous Bordeaux estates: Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Château Haut-Batailley. The estate comprises some 50 hectares of vineyards situated on well-drained gravel with stones of up to 2.5cm in diameter. Indeed, the name Beaucaillou translates literally as “beautiful stones”. The vineyards are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2008 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot aged for 18 months in new French oak.
