Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

We had the 2009 and 2010 Vintages in a vertical tasting on 6/26/22. The 2009 had a more floral bouquet. The 2010 was more minerality and earthy. The 2010 got better with aeration. Tastes of black cherry and cassis. The 2009 was more red berry. For both the tannins smoothed out. Both had long finishes. Both, of course were classic Old World; have to consider them medium bodied. — 5 days ago

Le Haut Medoc de Branaire-Ducru

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Once part of the Beychevelle estate, this is the 2nd wine of Chateau Branaire Ducru. The grape varieties are typical Bordeaux, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. A medium bodied wine, with plum, blackberry and cassis. The fruit is very present, with soft tannines. After 10 years in the bottle still young, but soft, and years ahead of it still. Surprisingly good quality for about 17-18 Eur. Formidable! — 2 years ago
