Bordeaux, France

↓ Jump to the wines

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is named after the beautiful, large stones that characterise its unique Garonne or Günz gravel soil. The "Ducru" part of the name was added in 1795, when the property was bought by Bertrand Ducru. This exceptional terroir translates into fine, elegant wines with a long finish, the epitome of Saint-Julien. Perched on an exceptional site with incomparable views over the Gironde estuary, in the centre of a hundred-year-old park, Ducru-Beaucaillou is a majestic, Victorian-style château, which has, over time, become one of the great symbols of the Médoc. Unusually for Bordeaux, it is built directly above the barrel cellars, enveloping its owners - the Borie family - who have lived here for over sixty years, in the sumptuous aromas of their wine.

The estate of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou extends over some 245 hectares, 100 of which are in vine, with almost 3 hectares of parkland and almost 140 hectares of pasture, marshes and forests.
