Second Growth estate Ch. Ducru-Beaucaillou in Saint-Julien is one of the Super Seconds, an elite group of properties producing wines that regularly compete with the finest in the Médoc.

The château itself is an impressive stately house aggrandised by two fairy-tale towers on the fringes of the village of Saint-Julien. Tracing its roots back to the 13th century, it has been under the stewardship of the Borie family since 1941 and most notably Bruno Borie since 2003, whose influence at the estate has seen quality here improve dramatically.

Tasting Notes

"Christmas pudding, dried cranberries and bouquet garni with nuances of cast iron pan, dusty soil and woodsmoke. Medium-bodied, the palate has a firm, chewy backbone and oodles of freshness with a core of dried herbs and stewed tea and a slightly rustic finish."
