About Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou

In French, "beaucaillou" literally translates to "beautiful stones," which are what mark the terroir at this St. Julien estate. These stones, which can be up to 2.5" inches in length, stretch deep beneath the earth's surface providing excellent drainage and aeration for the vines at Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou.

Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2011

Ruby-red.  Pungent, vibrant aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate and graphite.  Silky and seamless, but with terrific lift to the tight core of raspberry, mineral and chocolate flavors.  Strong but integrated acidity gives superb vinosity to the wine's racy fruit.  Finishes brisk, perfumed and long, with suave, dusty tannins.  This wine went into a shell with aeration, suggesting that it will need at least several years of bottle aging.  I would not be surprised if it merited an even higher score ten years down the road.
