    About

    Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is one of the most magnificent Chateaux in Bordeaux. Driving through Saint Julien, you can't miss it - it's more like a stately palace than a chateau and is set in a 100 year-old park. As the name 'beau caillou' suggests, it is named after the beautiful large stones that are a feature of the land. These stones play an important part in the success of the vines as they capture life giving heat during hot summer days and release it back into the ground at night. The name 'Ducru' came from Bertrand Ducru who bought the estate in 1795 and added his name to the wine. The estate was subsequently sold in 1866 for 1 million francs. Since then, it has changed hands again twice and today is still a family run estate.

    Wine Critic, Robert Parker summed this vintage of Ducru up with the following report, 'An excellent 1992 that reveals impressive concentration, this vintage of Ducru boasts fine structure, as well as an attractive berry-scented, floral nose. Rich and authoritative, with firm tannin, medium body, and a spicy, long finish, this impressive wine begs for 2-3 years of cellaring. It is a candidate for 10-15 years of positive evolution. This is one of the most complete wines of the vintage.
