Description

All of the breadth and depth of a Haut-Médoc wine unveiled by Ducru Beaucaillou

The estate

An icon of the left bank, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is undoubtedly one of the greatest names in the Bordeaux region. The 2nd Cru Classé in the Official Classification of 1855 embodies the perfect model of a great Saint-Julien. Acquired by the Borie family in 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its extraordinary terroir. Under the leadership of the determined and talented Bruno Borie, Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest wines of Saint-Julien.

The vineyard

The Château Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard is situated along the river and planted in soils of gravel dating from the Günz Ice Age. Located near the Gironde estuary, the vines enjoy an exceptional microclimate and the river, which acts as a thermoregulator, to produce this Haut-Médoc wine.

Blend

Merlot (66%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (24%)
Petit Verdot (10%).

Ageing

After the harvests and a bespoke winemaking process, the wine ages for 12 months in Bordeaux barrels, 20% of which are new wood and 80% barrels of one previous wine. During the first 6 months, topping-up occurs regularly and racking takes place every two to three months, with four in total.

Tasting

Colour
The 2020 Madame de Beaucaillou showcases a deep purple colour.

Nose
The aromatic bouquet reveals a generous expression of red fruits: plums and cherries, emphasised by a touch of violet.

Palate
The 2020 Madame de Beaucaillou is a wine with concentrated aromas and beautiful fullness. The depth of its style and its perfect structure extend into a fresh and very significant finish.
