Madame de Beaucaillou
This new wine comes from the vineyards located in the Haut-Médoc; plots brought by Madame Eugène-Borie on her marriage and more recently by the acquisition of plots from Madame Fort-Pradère. A tribute to the woman who chaired the Supervisory Board from 1998 and until the year 2020. The opportunity to put the spotlight on this great lady who, out of discretion and humility, was content to stay in the shadows. Gently, calmly, her image will join the long line of female owners of Ducru-Beaucaillou.
Vinified in the cellars by the Ducru-Beaucaillou teams, this wine receives the best care: the technical winemaking process, very selective blending, and careful ageing for 12 months in barrel (including 20% new oak). Technique at the service of purity of expression. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rub shoulders without ever competing; one brings opulence, the other brings structure. In blends, as in marriage, it is complementarity, mutual exaltation that counts.
68% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 2% Petit Verdot
