Bruno-Eugène Borie, winemaker of taste and sensitivity, enjoys treating his guests to the refined cuisine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, accompanied by the "house wines". For this aesthete and gourmet also extends his perpetual quest for emotion as far as his wines, and this year has entrusted his ambitions to a new Managing Director, Jean-Baptiste Maugars.
The teams are delighted with the unexpected result of their efforts. Amazingly, the wines do not reflect the conditions of the vintage. Whilst we might have expected to taste "wines from elsewhere in the South", we discover all the freshness, the fruit and the taste of Bordeaux. Bruno-Eugène speaks of a wine that is "breath-taking", which "explodes in the mouth and then disperses through the whole body in a thrillingly spine-tingling manner". A new "benchmark" which takes its place in the pantheon of fabulous vintages alongside 1945 and 1961!
