This newcomer from the formidable Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is a selection derived from St-Julien vineyards. An affectionate and informative name that already tells wine lovers something about its positioning and its ambitions.

Le Petit Ducru is an introduction to the Borie signature; from its complexity to its structure, by way of its balance and its elegance. Despite being a new wine, it goes through a rigorous technical process, drastic selection, demanding winemaking. Here, barrel ageing lasts for 12 months with one-third new oak. A Cabernet-Merlot blend and depending on the vintage, sometimes with a hint of Petit Verdot, varietal that we know to be a skillful sculptor.

Tasting Notes

Le Petit Ducru is a wine of balance and harmony. Blackberry and blueberry aromas with black licorice and dark violets that follow to a medium to full body with ultra fine tannins and a pretty finish.

Food Pairings

Accessible from its earliest youth, it will make for a happy dining companion. It will make for a perfect marriage with poultry where it will bow down before its crispy, brown skin and envelop the steaming flesh with its tannins.

Country: Saint-Julien, Bordeaux - France
