Family-run Château Ducru-Beaucaillou recently celebrated its 300th birthday, having been considered ‘Master Craftsmen of Excellence’ in wine since 1720. Considered the archetypal St-Julien wine, this Médoc château produces Deuxième Crus (Second Growths). Owned by the Borie family since 1941 the château is managed by Bruno Borie.

Ducru-Beaucaillou’s vines average 56 years and produce Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from 50 hectares of well-drained gravel. The name Beaucaillou translates as “beautiful stones” which is a nod to the 2.5-inch stones that make up the vines’ gravel bed. Their wines are matured in oak barriques for 18 months.

OUR VERDICT
The ‘beautiful stones’ of Ducru can indeed be responsible for some of Bordeaux’s very finest wines. Try a wine like 1995, for instance, and you can be forgiven for thinking that you are drinking and savouring a first growth. A wine of incredible scale and poise, it is more than your average ‘super-second’.
