Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou Cuvée ' Petit Ducru ' 2019 ( Double Magnum 3L)
The Petit Ducru is thus intended to be an introduction to the Borie label, a courteous invitation to approach the qualities of its elders Ducru-Beaucaillou and La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou; from its complexity to its structure, through its balance and elegance.
There is of course an air of family, a beautiful connivance between the three nectars. They know what they have in common: rigorous technical career, drastic selection, demanding winemaking. Here, the aging in barrels lasts 12 months with 1/3 of new wood.
A cabernet-merlot assembly, with sometimes, depending on the vintages, a tip of small verdot, this grape variety that we know is a skilled shearer.
