Winemaker Notes

René Lusseau

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

by René Lusseau
Being a second label of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou it’s derived from separate and distinct vineyard just to the west of the Château, undergoing a strict selection of the fruit to achieve a particular purity of the blends. This savoury and classic red is steeped in the tradition of a true Burgundy, with a style covering a broad spectrum of flavours, but remain elegant and structured. The fresh youth fruit has cherry notes and a low tannin. The jammy and deep fruit taste comes with much tones of spices and can be enjoyed at any time. Characteristics include bell pepper, chassis, cedar, strawberry and cherry with some raspberry, plum, pepper and spice.
