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.

Sweet and suave in the mouth, showcasing pure flavors of blackberry and blackcurrant. Finishes quite long, with lovely mineral tang, a note of blackberry syrup and peppery, youthfully chewy tannins
