Tasting Notes


This is a marvelously complete wine, with its impressive ripe fruit, shining through the open structure. It is firm, but not too much. Stone black fruits are just perfectly ripe. There is just a core of dryness to compliment the rest of the wine.


(75% cabernet sauvignon, 19% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc; 3.77 pH; 13% alcohol): Good full ruby-red with a pale rim. Aromas of cassis and aromatic herbs are complicated by strong nuances of truffle and minerals. Dense, juicy and suave, displaying very pure, persistent flavors of cassis, gunflint, cedar and sweet spices. This wine really impresses with to its impeccable balance and sneaky concentration. It`s drinking perfectly now, but also has the structure and acid spine to age effortlessly another 20 years. The grapes were harvested later than usual, between October 1 and 14.

The Winery

Chateau Branaire-Ducru

Already back in 1680 when Jean-Baptiste Braneyre acquired the estate, he understood how exceptional this wonderful terroir was, made up mainly of stones, called "graves" in the Medoc, and located so near the very wide Gironde estuary.

The soils are unique in their mineral make-up and are the cornerstone of the wines' special quality. Together with those of other prestiguos neighbors they form the extraordinary little unit known around the world under the name of Saint-Julien. Their prestige was confirmed in 1855 when 61 chateaux were listed in the classification of Medoc Grand Crus and Branaire-Ducru was one of them.
