The Ducru-Beaucaillou château and estate lies relatively close to the broad Gironde estuary, which moderates the local microclimate and gives some protection from frost and hail. On the deeper gravel layers of the vineyard there is enhanced drainage, evening warmth, and a protective layer stopping the subsoil from drying out in heat waves.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T17:00:41-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-25T20:04:27-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","NK2403","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Ducru-Beaucaillou","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","varietal_cabernet sauvignon","Varietal_Merlot"],"price":139899,"price_min":139899,"price_max":139899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42870067495050,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1978 | Château Ducru-Beaucaillou | Saint-Julien (Magnum)","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":139899,"weight":24494,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/64_7f122589-cb1c-4277-a239-288caa407346.jpg?v=1679789095"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/64_7f122589-cb1c-4277-a239-288caa407346.jpg?v=1679789095","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1978 | Château Ducru-Beaucaillou | Saint-Julien (Magnum) at CaskCartel.com","id":24473967329418,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/64_7f122589-cb1c-4277-a239-288caa407346.jpg?v=1679789095"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/64_7f122589-cb1c-4277-a239-288caa407346.jpg?v=1679789095","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1978 | Château Ducru-Beaucaillou | Saint-Julien (Magnum)\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe wine is perfectly balanced, with notes of graphite, smoke, fine-grained tannins and a cedar finish.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château Ducru-Beaucaillou\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" mce-data-marked=\"1\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eF\u003c\/span\u003e | 95\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e:\u003c\/strong\u003e 1978\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 1.5L\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 13%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Bordeaux\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRich dark berry confit on the nose, delicate animal and cedar touch, fine dark chocolate, multi-faceted bouquet, Ducru through and through.
