Producer Tasting Notes

Opaque colour with an explosion of rich black fruits, crushed gravel, exotic oak spices and a floral perfume. This wine possesses a tight structure with layered, silky tannins, great precision and breadth of flavours, underpinned by superb freshness. Very elegantly composed, with perfectly mastered power. Great finish, the flavours perfume the palate with endless persistence. To add to the glorious 2018 & 2019, Ducru Beaucaillou marks its 300th anniversary with the richest wine in its history. The warm


Vineyard Notes

Its proximity to the vast Gironde River estuary (some 635 km²). The four daily tides that stir up this massive body of water mitigate the rigors of winter, moderate the summer heatwaves, and deflect the devastating trajectory of hailstorms. No less than 50 manual interventions contribute to the crafting of Ducru-Beaucaillou grand vin.


Winemaking

Regular topping-up of barrels is carried out during the first six months of ageing. The wines are then racked by gravity every three months, with a total of seven rackings during ageing. Traditional fining performed in barrel with egg whites. Bottling is carried out in a sterile atmosphere under inert oenological gas. Only first-quality natural corks with a length of 54 mm are used. Our bottles are laser etched, engraved with Ducru Beaucaillou, and have holograms incorporated into the labels.


Ageing

Will age for 18 months in 100% new oak barrels. Certified French oak, naturally matured outdoors.
