Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou derives its name from the magnificent, sizable stones abundant in its unique terroir. This exceptional environment yields wines that are refined, graceful, and flavorful, boasting prolonged finishes — quintessential representations of Saint-Julien.

Situated atop an extraordinary vantage point with breathtaking vistas of the Gironde estuary, amidst a century-old park, Ducru-Beaucaillou stands as a majestic Victorian-style castle. Evolving into one of Médoc's eminent symbols over time, it holds a distinctive feature rare in Bordeaux: built directly atop its barrel cellars, enveloping its inhabitants, who have resided here for over six decades.

Presently, the estate is under the stewardship of Jean Eugène Borie SA, helmed by Mrs. Borie, her daughter Sabine Coiffe, and her son Bruno-Eugène, who has served as CEO since 2003, marking the third generation of the Borie family to lead the estate. Strong bonds unite this property with the five families who have sequentially presided over its legacy.

 

"Aromas of currants, orange peel and dried flowers. Minerals. Medium to full body, fine and lightly chewy tannins, and a long and linear finish. Hints of salt. Crushed stone. Flavorful and bright. A little closed. Needs time to open. 53% cabernet sauvignon, 44% merlot, and 3% petit verdot. Better after 2027."
-James Suckling, 95 Points

"The 2020 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou, matured in 60% new oak for an expected 12 months, is pleasantly reduced on the nose, opening up in the glass with intense black fruit laced with black olive and subtle estuarine scents. The palate is medium-bodied with an appealing powdery texture. A structured Saint-Julien with tangible backbone and grip on the finish. Yet, there is exquisite balance and impressive salinity on the aftertaste. Excellent."
-Vinous, 94 Points
