Château Branaire (duluc Ducru)

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

I continue to love this!

30 minute plus decant. Dark cherry color. Classic Bordeaux nose filled with earth, smoke, and tar. Velvet on the palate with nice smoke. Could be deeper, but a tremendous wine!

Le Haut Medoc de Branaire-Ducru

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

I liked this but it didn’t blow me away or anything. Black cherries and plumb. A bit of spice and tobacco. Oak. Smooth tannins. — 10 months ago
