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!

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.

Ok $24 not a lot of depth. Additional 5 years plus could help

Nice restaurant purchase. Served a bit warm. Nice wine. Classic BDX profile from a good year.
