Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is named after the beautiful, large stones found in its unique wine-growing terroir. This exceptional ecosystem produces fine, elegant, tasty wines, with a long finish – in short, archetypal Saint-Julien wines. Perched on an exceptional site with incomparable views over the Gironde estuary, in the centre of a hundred-year-old park, Ducru-Beaucaillou is a majestic, Victorian-style castle, which has, over time, become one of the great symbols of the Médoc. Unusually for Bordeaux, it is built directly above the barrel cellars, enveloping its owners, who have lived here for over sixty years, in the sumptuous aromas of their wine. Today, the estate is managed by the company Jean Eugène Borie SA, which is owned by Mrs Borie, her daughter Sabine Coiffe and her son Bruno-Eugène, CEO since 2003, the third generation of the Borie family to head the estate. There are very close links between this estate and the five families who have been its successive owners. The estate’s history starts at the very beginning of the 13th century. Owned by the Bergeron family from 1720, the estate rapidly obtained a good reputation, in France and abroad: as early as this, visitors came from Scandinavia. The Municipal archives in Bordeaux dating from the French Revolution reveal that a sword and pistol were confiscated by the authorities from some Swedes, who were staying in the castle at the time. The estate was sold in 1795 to Bertrand Ducru who added his name to that of the castle, which then became known as “Ducru-Beaucaillou”. Ducru hired Parisian architect Paul Abadie to renovate the residence. The architect transformed it into a charterhouse in the Directoire style, adding a floor and an elegant façade which looks out over the eastern bank of the Gironde estuary, where, the intense 18th-century maritime traffic provided an animated show of sea-faring ships.

Es ist ein klassischer, typischer Wein aus der Appellation St-Julien, der sich im Glas offenbart: ausgewogenes, vielschichtiges und delikates Bouquet: ein Schmeichler par excellence. So wie man die Weine aus dieser Appellation kennt: feminine Noten, aber auch Stoff und Struktur. Es ist kein alltäglicher Wein, der sich auch im Gaumen offenbart. Und das Finale zeigt alles: Es ist die Quintessenz eines Rotweins, der einfach gefällt und verführt. Dieses erstklassige Gewächs ist wertvoll und prestigeträchtig zugleich.

Some decent plum and berry character, with hints of herbs. Light-bodied, light finish. Slightly lighter than I remember. Drink now. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Pontet-Canet 750ml
