About: Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, Grand Cru Classé in the Saint-Julien appellation, is one of the iconic sites of the Médoc.
On these stony ridges, steeped in time, carved out by a primitive Gironde between Margaux to the south and Pauillac to the north, there is a concentration of prestigious estates. Despite the appellation’s small area (900 hectares), it boasts eleven classified growths. A cumulation of science and human values in one of the most highly regarded terroirs in the world. The best vineyards, slightly elevated, overlook the immense estuary (635 km2). The soils, essentially made up of gravel, marl and pebbles, give the wines of Saint-Julien an extraordinary elegance and breed.
Tasting notes: A soft, fruity attack on the palate, a voluptuousness underscored by perfectly integrated, silky tannins that culminate in an exceptionally lengthy finish. The aromas dance, flatter the nose, seduce the soul and penetrate the memory. A muse that arrives on tiptoe and leave a lasting, infinite souvenir.
