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.

Lots of oak on the nose with big notes of candied cinnamon spice, red fruits, citrussy tones and hints of sandalwood and even some exotic guava tones – a bit thick on entry, seamless if still showing strong oak influences, lots of jammy fruit, black currant, crème de cassis, acids are b a bit spiky, tannins are powdery and raw on the moderately long finish (89-90)

Pretty nose, nice, approachable and balanced. Currant and slight dark licorice. Full bodied with velvety tannins and a caressing finish. Wonderfully rounded with great depth and balance. Nice flavor of red berry shining through the dense mouthfeel. Very nice! - Blind tasted 9/15/10

Dieser Wein ist ein aussergewöhnlich kräftiger Wein mit einer dichten lila Farbe, Intensität und einer schönen süssen Nase von Frühlingsblumen, Himbeeren, Heidelbeeren, Graphit und Crème de Cassis. Vollmundig mit einer fabelhaften Konzentration.

Purple color of good intensity. Fruity floral fresh and ripe nose. Very lovely and tasty on entry the wine develops finely pulpy with taste flesh and fine tannins. Enjoyable and aromatic on the finish. This is delicious and with depth. Good length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

A solid wine, with plenty of rose petal, berry and currant character. Full and chewy. Ripe and very powerful. Wait and see, but impressive for the vintage. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Ducru Beaucaillou 3000ml

This year the wine is made from a very large majority of cabernet sauvignon 90% and 10% merlot. Lovely intense and shinny color. For now the nose is rather discreet yet upon swirling it reveals depth fruit a smoky characteristic and once more some cherry aromas. Lovely on entry the wine develops sliding on the palate both juicy and silky. It evolves fruity less pulpy than the 2005 of course towards a long finish made of fine-grained tannins. The body is rather classic from its balance and its straight style on the palate that is induced by the strong presence of cabernet sauvignon. A success of the vintage.

Deep red color with a light ruby rim. Expressive aromas of chocolate, coffee, and mocha with some dark fruits in there as well. Ripe blackberry and blueberry attribute to a luscious and delightful mid-palate. Showing good concentration and complexit... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Pontet-Canet 750ml
