Well, here is the story. We tasted ten old california cabs, with dominus 1983 being the best. Then I opened a magnum of this wine. This was most unbelievable wine, actually would stand well with any of the wines in a St Julien tasting several months ago. This was way better along all the dimensions (balance, body, nuances, subtlety, elegance, aftertaste) than any of california wines -- still have way to go to match the old world charm. Everybody was quite taken out. Of course, it was a magnum.

About This Producer


Located in the appellation of Saint-Julien, Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou is named for the beautiful large stones and pebbles that cover the vineyard. These stones create ideal grape-growing conditions, as they aid in drainage, reflect sun onto the vines, and keep the ground from drying out. These conditions create the "typical" Saint-Julien wine - elegant and smooth, with a long finish. The outstanding structure of these wines gives them great aging potential as well.

The Borie family has owned the estate for the past 60 years, and still lives in the chateau. The chateau itself is unusual for Bordeaux because the house was built directly over the cellar, which means the family lives literally surrounded by their wines. The estate's second wine is called La Croix de Beaucaillou.
