Ducru-Beaucaillou. The name may seem bizarre, but it has its own logic. The "beaux cailloux" are the smooth, round, flat, unusually large pebbles that lie beneath the mature (over fifty years in age) and numerous (ten thousand per hectare) roots of the vineyard. Ducru is the name of the family that acquired an estate reputed to be nothing but arid, stony ground. Nevertheless, the Ducrus decided to plant a vineyard on it. Since then, all the successors have worked hard to extract from the depths of this inhospitable soil the quintessence of a great Médoc wine. And they have succeeded, approaching an archetypal level of quality and earning a reputation as the "most accomplished of all Bordeaux wines."
