Château Ducru Beaucaillou is located in Right bank of Bordeaux in Saint Julian. It is recognized as the only second growth that can be compared with Las Cases. The winery went through several operators and was acquired by Francis Borie in 1941. The Borie family has always upheld the rigorous spirit of winemaking to show respect for nature and the land, as well as the characteristics of each vintage. Its quality is delicate and balanced in its youth, and it is quite delicious to drink; however, when it is properly aged, it will reveal the charming elegance and depth of Médoc's first-class wines, and it can be described as a personable gentleman. Nowaday it is recognized as a super second-growth winery. The wine quality and strength are comparable to first-level wineries. The price is affordable and has great collection value and aging potential. No wonder it has been loved by connoisseurs all over the world.
 
The name of the winery comes from the French beaux cailloux (ancient quartz pebbles). You can see that the vineyards are covered with gravel. The average age of the trees is 35 years. It is sold as Second Army Wine. The Borie family is currently in the third generation after taking over Ducru Beaucaillou in 1942. It not only led the winery to its current position, but also owned the fifth-level winery Grand-Puy Lacoste and Haut-Batailley. In 1970, it also owned the third-level winery Lagrange A vineyard is bought and Lalande-Borie is created.

============


Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou is provocatively and profoundly scented of chocolate-covered cherries, fresh black currants, crushed blueberries and licorice with touches of cigar box, roses and violets plus hints of black pepper and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, rich and sultry with tons of seductive layers and firm, wonderfully velvety tannins, it has a very long, multilayered finish.
