About the estate

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

Tasting notes

A wine of extraordinary charm and elegance, the Ducru-Beaucaillou 1985 with its dark garnet color presents a floral nose of cedar mixed with blackcurrant and flowers. The wine is fully mature and soft, with beautiful concentration and purity. 90 points (R. Parker 2003) 

Exceptional provenance in  OWC: These bottles come from a cellar of a great Swiss enthusiast and collector. We have acquired the complete collection containing more than 200 bottles of mainly French and Italian wines. The bottles were all preserved following their purchase en primeur or shortly after their marketing on site, in a natural cellar buried under a 16th century convent. A damp cellar, which is why some labels are very worn. The levels are generally excellent or perfect and the most "fragile" bottles demonstrate storage in total darkness for more than 30 years!
