Château Branaire-Ducru (2016)

New

Deep in colour, the Château Branaire Ducru 2016 offers a complex and expressive nose that develops fragrances of ripe fruit and is rich, clear and fresh. Even in the mouth, the wine is juicy from the attack. The tannic structure combines great finesse with a high density. The finish is long and clear. An exceptionally dense and fine wine, and part of one of the best vintages in the history of the estate.

                      Chateau Branaire-Ducru

     

    Château Branaire-Ducru is situated on the opposite side of the road from Château Beychevelle in the south of the St-Julien appellation. Patrick Maroteaux has owned the property since 1988 and he has invested heavily in new plantings as well as installing a spanking new cuvier and an ultra-modern chai.

    Branaire-Ducru's 60 hectares of vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (22%), Cabernet Franc (5%), Petit Verdot (3%). The wines are matured in oak barriques (65% new). The proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend is even higher than that in the vineyards - 80-85% in most years, which is one of the highest in the Médoc.

    Branaire-Ducru produces a pure and classic St-Julien which is elegant, ripe, supple and well-balanced. It is classified as a 4ème Cru Classé.
