Chateâu Loudonne

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Tonight's wine I have opened the 2010 Chateâu Branaire-Ducru Duluc de Branaire-Ducru.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, game, eucalyptus, chocolate and earth.

On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, plum sauce, black currant, dried herbs, spice and earth.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + fine grippy tannins that leads to a long dark fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. We are almost to the end of the first week in June and the weekend is upon us. Please enjoy the rest of the week and have a great weekend. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

@Ron R I think Saint-Julien is such an underrated and overlooked appellation in Bordeaux. Because they don't have a First Growth I think is a big reasonnthey are overlooked, but it still has a lot to offer.

I agree, @Daniel P. Drake. And I hope people continue to overlook them. They are typically soft and graceful.

@Daniel P. Drake @Ron R In most vintages Leoville las Cases would be First Growth quality or at least knocking on the door.

Chateâu La Becasse

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1994

Nose: Sweet, soft cigar box, black pepper at the very end. Gentle tannins, fruit is almost gone but there's still enough structure to hold everything together. Very enjoyable drinking. — 6 years ago
