Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, created in 1720, is so named because of the beautiful (and large) pebbles characteristic of its unique wine-growing terroir. In an original way in Bordeaux, this Victorian-style Château is built directly above the barrel cellars. Classified as a 2nd Growth in 1855, the property has been owned by the Borie family since 1942, who perpetuate the same concern for excellence. La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is the property’s second wine.
The surface area of this terroir is 37 hectares planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
