Histoire et anecdotes

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou was classified as Second Grand Cru in the 1855 classification, in Saint-Julien appellation. This Château was founded more than 300 years ago. Near the Gironde estuary, it was named after its “beautiful pebbles” (“beaux cailloux” in French), gunzian gravels carried along by the Gironde more than two million years ago. The Borie family acquired it in 1941.
