1961 Ducru-Beaucaillou Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - St Julien - Red - Second Growth

France - Bordeaux - St Julien

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

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.

Rated a second growth in the 1855 classification, Ducru-Beaucaillou gets much less attention then other seconds from St.-Julien such as L?oville Las Cases. Light garnet colored wine that turns completely clear at the rim. A still intense nose of leather, game, light spice, and rose. Shows some fruit in the mouth with light and silky tannins leading to a finish of excellent length. Drink up.
