Notes
The 2020 Madame de Beaucaillou is a blend of 66% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it flies out of the glass with notes of preserved red and black cherries, spice cake; and graphite with a touch of lavender. The medium-bodied palate is soft, open, and ready to drink with a fruity finish.

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.
