One of the top guns of St. Julien appellation alongside Leoville Las Cases, Ducru Beaucaillou has been in the last 20 years commanding high prices with their track record of quality. Ducru Beaucaillou indeed lived up to its 2nd Growth status in the 1855 Classification.
At 10 years of age, it is worth approaching this wine now if you plan to buy a few bottles. We say this because this wine has so much potential - 30 to 40 years! Intense in all aspects, full bodied and typical Cabernet Sauvignon black fruits. The owner, Bruno Borie, believes that this is the finest Ducru made since 1961! That says alot.
This wine makes the perfect bottle if you plan to collect and drink 10 or 20 years later or if you plan to give to someone special/VIP customer.
