Ducru-Beaucaillou 2001 - Saint-Julien
In the commune of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle is the Château Ducru-Beaucaillou.
An estate of 75 hectares classified as second grand cru in the 1855 classification.
The estate has existed since 1720, with six successive families of owners.
Château Ducru-Beaucaillou owes its name to the "beautiful pebbles", called Graves Gunziennes, which are quartz pebbles carried by the primitive Gironde at the start of the early Quaternary, probably nearly two million years ago.
These Günzian gravels gave rise to lean soils, whose agrological poverty guarantees the qualitative excellence of the wines
2001 in Bordeaux is a very good vintage, a classic vintage, more tannic than 2000 and long aging.
On tasting, aromas of blackcurrant and blackberries are noticeable, as well as morello cherry, pepper and aromas of undergrowth. It is elegant and harmonious.
