ATELIER ALAIN ELLOUZ
You are cordially invited
to join Bruno-Eugène Borie, proprietor-grower of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou Grand Cru Classé Saint-Julien, and Alain Ellouz, stone master craftsman, lighting designer and scenographer, in celebration of their unique collaboration project — Le BEAUX CAILLOUX
Luxurious capsule for luxurious wine — an exclusive limited edition casing created in the secret workshops of Alain Ellouz Atelier encapsulates Château Ducru-Beaucaillou's exceptional 1982 vintage from its private collection, in double magnum.
Common passion for excellence brought the two powerhouses together.

Two beautiful stones — Beaux Cailloux — Günzian gravels and Alabaster. Two materials that yield unique works of art.
‘Beautiful stone’ tells a unique tale of passion and patience, expressed through this precious material.

We invite you to celebrate a limited-edition stone case created by Alain Ellouz for an exceptional vintage from Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou's private collection:
the 1982 vintage, in double magnum.

Beautiful ruby colour with a rich amber rim. Stunningly deep and complex bouquet leading with dried rose petals and a wisp of cedary herbs, followed by a core of sweet fruit liqueurs and a hint of liquorice. With aeration, Havana cigar smoke, wild mushrooms and oiled leather notes unfurl.
Medium to full bodied with impressive concentration of sweet fruits, seamless integration of cashmere textured tannins, and vibrant freshness bringing focus to the flavours.
The finish is highly perfumed and nuanced with epic persistence.
Extraordinary depth,
perfect harmony, absolute elegance
