(08-2020) "The harvest lasted 16 days from the 16th September," proprietor Bruno Borie mentioned about the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou. Medium brick colored, it comes galloping out of the glass with bold, expressive notes of Black Forest cake, preserved plums and mincemeat pie with hints of cigar box, star anise, eucalyptus and espresso plus wafts of roasted nuts and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, generous and opulent, the palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of youthful fruit, finishing with epically long-lasting layers of preserved black fruits and exotic spices.

(04-2016) A delicious, gorgeous wine that is ready to enjoy now. Layers of dried herbs, savory spices and leather mingle in this delicious wine at its peak.

(08-1999) Colored. Slightly evolved and of good intensity. On the nose, humus, truffle on a very ripe fruity background with a touch of cedar and liquorice. Appetizing. Very attractive on the palate due to the pulpy, tender and fleshy texture. However, one could expect even more flesh in the center if one is demanding. The tanicity remains soft, tasty and aromatic, with good persistence on the finish. Drunk at the table in August 1999, I first enjoyed it with the steak, despite the high temperature. Immediately after the meat, the wine lacked power and it was necessary to drink more to make it tighten the mouth (clever to empty the bottle). And finally, the air gave it allure. Drink very easily.

Château Ducru Beaucaillou

The Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, is a vineyard of 75 hectares, located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle in the Gironde. AOC Saint-Julien, he is ranked a second growth in the famous in the Grand Cru rankings of 1855. The first traces of the estate date back to the thirteenth century. The castle was for centuries, until 1720, the property of the Bergeron family. In 1795 the estate was ceded to the  Ducru family and the it took their name.  Bertrand Ducru then undertook radical changes to the castle (with the help of architect Paul Abadie) and the new viticulture installations (new winery). The consecration of these efforts will be the status of second growth ranking in the 1855 classification. In 1866, the castle was sold to the family of Nathaniel Johnston (1836-1914), a wine merchant and potter from Bordeaux, mayor and representative of St. Julian. The financial crisis of 1929 forced Nathaniel Johnston to sell the estate to the Desbarats family  and after only twelve years they ceded it to the Borie family, who still owns the castle today.
