    Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2023

    Tasting

    Nose
    Pure and concentrated, the nose harmoniously blends floral (violet), fruity (black fruits, blackcurrant, blackberry), spicy (exotic spices) and woody (cedar) fragrances.

    Palate
    Seductive in concentration and complexity, the palate combines a caressing and finely granular touch with a beautiful freshness and tasty star anise and flint stone flavours in the finish.

    A full-bodied and lively Saint-Julien red wine

    The estate

    Iconic Cru Classé of Saint-Julien, the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou overlooks a prestigious terroir. In 300 years, six families have worked to make this cru shine with a worldwide reputation that has never been denied. Owned by the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its "beautiful pebbles" terroir made up of Günzian gravels. Led by Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou ranks among the elite of Saint-Julien's great red wines. Vintage after vintage, its crus delight lovers of great Médoc wines all over the world.

    The vineyard

    The particularity of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou lies in the exceptional quality of its vineyard. The vines are planted on Günzian and Pyrenean gravel soils deposited by the Gironde estuary nearly two million years ago. From these poor soils are born exceptional Saint-Julien wines.

    The vintage

    If the mild winter favours an early bud break at the end of March, the month of May is marked by a homogeneous flowering and fruit set, thanks to the combination of warm and dry conditions. Early and rapid, the flowering that began on May 22nd suggests a significant yield potential. The almost tropical humidity during the summer increases mildew pressure, which is controlled by the know-how of the teams. From mid-August, the high temperatures and low rainfall ensure optimal ripening of the berries while preserving a beautiful freshness.

    Vinification and ageing

    The ageing lasts 18 months.

    Blend
