Ducru-Beaucaillou, a ‘grand cru’ classified
The La Croix de Beaucaillou wines come from the
Château Ducru Beaucaillou vineyard.Chateau
Ducru-Beaucaillou is named after the beautiful,
stones found in its unique wine-growing terroir.
This exceptional ecosystem produces fine, elegant, tasty wines, with a long finish – in short,
archetypal Saint-Julien wines.
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.
Unusually for Bordeaux, it is built directly above the barrel cellars, enveloping its owners, who
have lived here for over sixty years, in the sumptuous aromas of their wine. Today, the estate is
managed by the company Jean Eugène Borie SA, which is owned by Mrs Borie, her daughter
Sabine Coiffe and her son Bruno-Eugène, CEO since 2003, the third generation of the Borie
family to head the estate.
