Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Château Branaire-Ducru is one of the finest names in the Saint-Julien appellation. Owned by François-Xavier Maroteaux, the son of the late Patrick Maroteaux, and managed by Jean-Dominique Videau, Château Branaire-Ducru offers, one vintage after another, the superb expression of this great terroir, situated on the left bank of Bordeaux. Producing wines that are renowned for their elegance, their velvety texture on the palate and their consistency. The vineyard of Château Branaire-Ducru spreads over 60 hectares, following an extension of 10 hectares in 2009. The vines are 36 years old on average (some are a hundred years old) and are planted on quaternary gravel-siliceous alluvial soils. Known as one of the warmest terroirs in the region, it allows the late-ripening grape varieties to develop while ensuring perfect phenolic ripeness. Part of the vineyard as well as the young vines are dedicated to the production of the Duluc de Branaire-Ducru cuvée, the second wine of Château Branaire-Ducru.

Description

The wine shows deep color. The nose is already expressive and complex, it develops over a ripe fruit, enhanced by fine spices. Pleasing fresh notes on the aeration give a beautiful dynamic to the whole. On the palate the attack is very round, typical of the year with beautiful maturity. some discreet aging notes bring today spicy hints. The mouth is developing gently showing a nice acidity that supports a beautiful strucutre. the final is very vivid and shows a pleasant fresh length.
