Château Ducru-Beaucaillou (2016)

New

A dark purple, the nose is delicate and composed with subtle floral notes, blackcurrant, dark fruits and graphite. On the palate there is a pleasing, rounded texture with further notes of cedar, mocha and liquorice coming through. It’s quite a restrained, subtle Ducru-Beaucaillou in 2016, with elegance and finesse. It finishes long with a juicy persistence.

    Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a St-Julien property that today is one of the leading Super Seconds. It is owned by the Borie family and is situated in the south-east of the St-Julien appellation. Ducru-Beaucaillou's 50 hectares of vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 25%, Cabernet Franc 5% and Petit Verdot 5%) lie on deep, large-stone gravel beds enriched with alluvial soil deposits and with a high clay content. The wines are matured in oak barriques (50-60% new) for 18 months.

     

    For many, Ducru-Beaucaillou is the quintessential St-Julien - deep-coloured, powerful, ripe, exquisitely well-balanced and perfectly harmonious. It requires a minimum of 10 years of bottle ageing before it should be approached and the best vintages will continue improving for many more years. Ducru-Beaucaillou is classified as a 2ème Cru Classé.
