Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou – St Julien 2017

RM1,250.0

One of the wines of the vintage in the Medoc, the 2017 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou comes from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot from tiny yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. Brought up in new barrels, it offers stunning notes of pure creme de cassis, unsmoked tobacco, lead pencil, and crushed rocks. Showing a touch of spring flowers with air, full-bodied richness and depth, awesome tannin quality, and a laser-like level of precision and purity, it’s going to need a decade of cellaring yet will have 40-50 years of prime drinking. Hats off to proprietor Bruno Borie for another magical wine.

Description

The history of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou dates back to the early eighteenth century, more precisely in the year 1720. It is so named because of the beautiful (and large) pebbles characteristic of its unique wine terroir. In an original way in Bordeaux, this Victorian style Chateau is built directly above the barrel cellars. Classified 2nd Classified Growth in 1855, the property is owned by the Borie family since 1942 which perpetuates the same concern for excellence.

Planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou produces a wine considered by many to be the quintessence of the Medoc. The attentive care of Bruno Borie, its owner, the quality and the meticulousness of the care lavished on the vine and the draconian selection of the grapes are all elements that can explain this success. Jacques Boissenot, and his son Eric, are the consulting oenologists of Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou. The harvest is entirely manual and the vinification evolves each year according to the typicality of the grapes harvested. In addition, vinification is always mastered and modern, carried out in a concern for perfection. 3 sorting tables, including one at the vineyard, plus an optical sorting machine allowed this year to work grapes with an optimum quality.

At the tasting, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou offers a wine with aromas of cedar and the texture of a first-growth breed.
