Wine tasting notes

The second wine of Chateau Branaire Ducru. The bouquet is beginning to open and reveals attractive aromas of ripe fruit and sweet smooth spices. It is generous round and fleshy on the palate with nicely ripe aromatic tannins.

JancisRobinson.com (2010) - 16 pts

Tasted Oct 2015 - There is a sweaty, herbal edge to this which makes the nose a little impure. Pretty tough palate. Hessian texture. (RH)


James Suckling (2010) - 94 pts

Feb, 2013. A layered young red with lots of black olives and berries on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. It all comes together at the end with a lovely sweet fruit. Try after 2017.


Wine Enthusiast (2010) - 95 pts

This rich, full wine shows the chateau to be at the top of its form. It's finely balanced, pushing both its fruit and acidity, with the tannins taking the supporting role. With its power leashed, this shows the stylish side of Saint-Julien, although it will certainly age for many years. R.V. (2/1/2013)
