Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a winery in the Saint-Julien appellation. The wine produced here was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
The estate was purchased by Francois Borie in 1941 and has remained in the family since, along with the family’s other estates Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Château Haut-Batailley.
Ducru-Beaucaillou produces two wines. The grand vin called Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, and a second wine, La Croix de Beaucaillou, which was produced since 1995 where lesser-quality lots are relegated.
