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.
91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($70-$90) Red-ruby. Nicely ripe aromas for the year: cassis, lead pencil, menthol, minerals and flowers. Then juicy, intense and sharply delineated, with lovely lift to the fla vors of dark berries, minerals and cedar. Silky-sweet wine with lovely aromatic persistence. And very intense for 2007.
