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.

Good dark red. Aromas of cassis, menthol, spices, herbs and mocha went into a shell in the glass. Sweet raspberry, currant, tobacco and spice flavors are supple and pliant in spite of the wine's firm acidity and high percentage of cabernet sauvignon. This juicy, approachable wine offers nicely ripe tannins and excellent length.
