The 2014 Ducru Beaucaillou showed extremely well when I tasted it with Bruno Borie during en primeur. Now in bottle, it delivers on that promise with beautifully defined blackberry and raspberry fruit infused with cedar and pencil box aromas. Quintessentially Saint Julien. The palate is very well defined with fine tannin, pitch-perfect acidity, a palpable sense of energy and frisson from start to finish that delivers plenty of tobacco-infused fruit. It is not the perfection-flirting legend that I have read elsewhere; it is just a damn good Saint Julien that is going to drink beautifully over the next 25 to 30 years.

波爾多超級二級酒莊,酒莊的名稱意即「美麗的礫石」,一向以風格優雅細緻,高雅的氣質著稱。全球最權威酒評家 Robert Parker 評為五大酒莊水準,比擬 Chateau Latour 拉圖堡、Chateau Mouton 木桐堡等。但價位只要五大酒莊的一半不到,故成為收藏家瘋狂追逐的標的。

Decru Beaucaillou酒莊由 Boire 柏利家族於1941年時買入,柏利是個酒業世家,除 Decru Beaucaillou 外,還擁有包括 Batailley 等多家波爾多名園。自 1953 年起家族就聘請被譽為全法國最偉大釀酒師之一的 Emile Peynaud 長期擔任釀酒顧問,也成就 Decru Beaucaillou 成為二等頂級酒莊中的翹楚。

Ducru Beaucaillou 目前持有約五十公頃的葡萄園,由本園名為 Beaucaillou 可得知園中多大礫石,可保溫也利於排水。葡萄數平均年齡38歲,以卡本內蘇維翁 65% 最多、其次是梅洛 25%、卡本內弗朗 5% 與小維多葡萄 5%。Ducru Beaucaillou 採傳統釀酒方法,對葡萄品質要求極為嚴格,初釀在六成新法國橡木桶中醇化18-20個月。
