Collection: Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, 2023 | Exclusive Barrel

↓ Jump to the wines

This wine is offered En Primeur, with an est. delivery in 2026.

We are delighted to share a special project with Ducru and the legendary Bruno Borie.

Ten places are available, limited to just one barrel totalling 300 bottles; each of the ten members will have the option to bottle and personalise the equivalent of 30x75cl. The back labels can be personalised and we can help you to pick the right wording; if you wanted to add a special date then you could do that too.

In addition, owner of Ducru Bruno Borie will host an exclusive dinner in 2025 for the ten buyers and a guest at Château Ducru Beaucaillou in Bordeaux. Knowing Bruno, there will no doubt be some phenomenal wines on show.

To say these would make a brilliant gift or memento to that special occurrence would be an understatement and with a drinking window stretching numerous decades, it can be something to tuck away and return to on those special occasions for many, many years.

Each parcel includes:

  • 30x75cl (or equivalent) of Ducru Beaucaillou 2023, bottled in formats of your choice at no extra cost,
  • Personalised back labels which can include a special date,
  • Exclusive dinner at Château Ducru Beaucaillou for you and a guest, with the other buyers, hosted by owner Bruno Borie.

Ducru have been slowly upping their proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon over the last few years and in a vintage in which Cabernet Sauvignon thrived on the left bank, it is not so hard to understand why the critics have all given some really lovely scores. The consistency of the scores is quite remarkable; always a sign of the true quality and broad appeal of a wine.

Jeb Dunnuck comments that “It’s another gorgeous wine from this chateau that plays in the style of the 2010, 2016, and 2020.” whilst Jeff Leve says that “Ducru Beaucaillou continues its unstoppable roll of fabulous vintages”. Lisa Perrotti-Brown thinks it is “more structured than most Médoc wines this year”, with Antonio Galloni commenting that “The aromatics alone are captivating” and surmises that “The balance of opulence and vibrancy is compelling”. 

If the barrel project isn’t quite right for you, we are also offering the ‘normal’ release of Ducru, without all the bells and whistles and available as usual.
