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

95(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Medium red-ruby.  Sexy, ripe aromas of black- and redcurrant, cedar and minerals, lifted by a subtle minty note; an essence of perfumed Saint-Julien cabernet sauvignon.  Then rich, deep and incredibly vibrant, displaying major dimensions for Ducru as well as a dense kernel of complex, delineated blackcurrant, red cherry, milk chocolate, cedar and fresh herb flavor.  Finishes wonderfully long and subtle, with suave tannins that eventually dust the front teeth and a quintessentially silky texture.  If the 2010 vintage is a modern classic, this wine could be Exhibit A.
