A delicious wine. Deep ruby red in colour, the nose opens with a bouquet of jammy red fruits, then floral violets. The taste is full, consistent and enveloping with a truly remarkable structure. Very long finish with some tertiary notes such as liquorice and vanilla.more reviews

"This wine will be listed in the annals of this historic domaine." - Wine Enthusiast -
Largely dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this vintage from Château Ducru-Beaucaillou has a beautiful purple red hue and offers tantalising fragrances of cherry, creme de cassis, roses and spice. The palate is rich and sensual with good tannins that are marvellously velvety. With a plethora of nuances at the finish, it is long yet crisp. A vintage not to be missed!

Balanced and elegant, it is powerful in the mouth, a wine with great personality. It is garnet red in colour, while the nose is complex, persistent and intense.

CHATEAU DUCRU-BEAUCAILLOU

Sited as its name suggests in 50 hectares on a wide slope of deep gravel, this vineyard occupies one of the most beautiful locations in the Médoc. With 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit-Verdot, Ducru-Beaucaillou produces a wine that's considered quintessentially Bordeaux, and more specifically of the Médoc. The owner, Bruno Borie, pays the utmost attention to quality and meticulously cares for the vines, as well as applying a stringent grape selection process. All of this leads to a wine that is supremely elegant and balanced, but never gaudy, and it can easily be stored for more than 10 years before it releases its true character.
