The history of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou dates back to the early eighteenth century, on the year 1720. It is so named because of the beautiful (and large) pebbles, characteristic of its unique wine terroir. In an original way in Bordeaux, this Victorian style Château is built directly above the barrel cellars. Classified 2nd Classified Growth in 1855, the property is retained by the Borie family since 1942 which perpetuates the same concern for excellence. The Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is the second wine of the property.
