Saint-Julien - 2nd Grand Cru Classé 


96-97/100 James Suckling

When to drink this wine : Great wine for ageing. Keep until at least 2026, and can be cellared for decades.

Tasted by J.S in 2022: "Firm, structured and pure with a fresh, solid core of blackcurrants, blackberries, tar, pencil lead and bitter chocolate. Tobacco notes too. Firm but silky tannins. Very pure, with a long mineral finish. Intense and very concentrated. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot".



Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a prestigious wine from the Bordeaux region of France. It is classified as a Second Growth in the official 1855 classification of Bordeaux wines. The estate is located in the Saint-Julien appellation, which is renowned for producing top-quality wines.



Serving Château Ducru-Beaucaillou requires a certain amount of attention in order to enjoy it in the best possible conditions. 

Here are a few tips for serving and tasting this wine:


  • Serving temperature: Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a powerful, complex red wine. We recommend serving it at a temperature of around 16 to 18 degrees Celsius. This will allow the aromas and flavors to express themselves fully.
  • Aeration: This wine needs to be well aerated before tasting. We recommend decanting for at least an hour before serving. This will allow the aromas to develop and the tannins to soften.
  • Glass: Use a tulip-shaped wine glass, which will allow the aromas to concentrate and release their fragrance. Be sure to fill the glass to about a third or half of its capacity, to facilitate agitation and oxygenation of the wine.
  • Tasting: First observe the wine's color. Château Ducru-Beaucaillou generally has a deep red color. Next, dip your nose into the glass and breathe in the aromas. You can detect notes of ripe black fruit, spices, cedar and tobacco.
  • On the palate, this wine is often characterized by a fine tannic structure, intense concentration and great complexity. You can perceive flavors of black fruit, cassis, licorice, vanilla and roasting. Take time to savor each sip and let the flavors evolve on your palate.


Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a wine that can benefit from cellar aging.
