Notes
The 2019 Le Petit Ducru is made from 60% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes barreling out with boisterous notes of plum preserves, black cherry compote, and mulberries, with touches of dried mint, espresso, and spice cake. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with bright, crunchy black fruits and a grainy texture, finishing savory.

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Ducru Beaucaillou has emerged as one of the most iconic wines from St Julien. In a commune literally bulging with celebrated estates, Ducru Beaucaillou, under the stewardship of Bruno Borie has hit the front of the pack. A true ‘Super Second’, the estate’s vineyards occupy some 215 hectares although only 75 hectares are used for Ducru. These are largely situated to the east of the D2, running almost all the way to the Gironde and some further inland towards Gruaud Larose. The soils around the chateau are dominated by Gunzian gravel and Cailloux. The estate is not all planted with vines and much of the production is used in the second label, La Croix de Beaucaillou and a separate label, Lalande-Borie. The style of the grand vin is flamboyant, polished and is built for long-term aging.
