The 1983 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the finest wines of the vintage on either bank of the Gironde. Now reaching its peak, this wine displays an exquisitely refined bouquet that delicately combines red and black cherries, accompanied by subtle notes of nutskin and a rich foundation of gravelly soil tones. Additional layers unfold with hints of cigar ash, juniper berry, and a smoky essence. On the palate, it presents a sleek and full-bodied profile, marked by exceptional purity at the forefront, supported by a solid mid-palate depth, precise focus, and refined tannins that seamlessly meld with a long, intricate, and perfectly balanced finish. While it promises several more decades of enjoyment, the 1983 Ducru-Beaucaillou is currently entering its prime drinking window, presenting itself as an outstanding representation of claret.

About the Producer

Saint Julien may not have any first growths, but if we forget about ranking and focus on quality, Château Ducru Beaucaillou is a perfect ambassador for the appellation. Created at the end of the 17th century, the property quickly demonstrated a capacity to produce fine wines. A century later, when mildew was destroying many of Bordeaux's vineyards, Ducru Beaucaillou managed to escape thanks to a new treatment discovered by the château's steward: the famous bouillie bordelaise (Bordeaux mixture) consisting of copper sulphate and lime, which is still used today. However, as it was popular in America, the property suffered greatly during prohibition, which deprived it of many customers. In 1941, Ducru Beaucaillou was bought by Francis Borie, who renovated the winery and replanted the vineyard. The property is still skilfully managed by the Borie family, who have managed to maintain the exceptional quality of the production.

The considerable presence of cailloux (pebbles) in the vineyard's soil, which is of course the origin of the château's name, contributes greatly to the wine's quality.
