More about this wine

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a mansion in St. Julien, which today is one of the leading 2ème Cru classifications. Ducru Beaucaillou's 75 hectares of vineyards are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. The average age of the vineyards is 35 years, but there are also quite old vineyards. The oldest is the plot of Les Sadons, which was planted in 1918. The heart and soul of Ducru Beaucaillou are the vineyards that are next to the castle. They are about 50 hectares and reach the Gironde River itself. They are covered with coarse gravel and clay under it. Gravel has many advantages: it drains water well, reflects the sun on the grapes, stores heat during the day and releases it at night. This is one of the best terrains in all of Bordeaux. Fineness and elegance are the hallmarks of Ducru-Beaucaillou wine, which is often considered the most typical representative of Saint-Julien. It takes at least 10 years before you open a bottle, and in good harvests, much more.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
