- Saint Julien, Bordeaux
93 points @ Wine Enthusiast
With fabulous concentration, this is really exciting, concentrated and serious and it holds its own against the truly inspirational Grand Vin. It has such a lovely fresh vibrancy and a great depth that is worthy of a far higher-ranked wine. A brilliant buy for the price.
Perfect pairing with red meat or cheese.
The Winery : Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou
The origins of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou date back to the beginning of the XVIII century, 1720 to be precise. 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 castle, which has, over time, become one of the great symbols of the Médoc.
