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

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2014

Inky ruby.  Laid-back aromas of dark berries, black cherry and herbs, with a subtle note of violet.  Clean and bright in the mouth, with taut blackcurrant and dark cherry flavors picking up sweetness with air.  The flinty black cherry note repeats on the finish, which features a subtle floral pastille quality and very good persistence.  I like this wine's understated character, but I wish it had a little more flesh and sweetness for an even higher score.
