Something about Chateau Branaire Ducru
Enthusiastic and ambitious, Patrick Maroteaux has not ceased his efforts to raise the chateau Branaire-Ducru to perfection with the objective of restoring the wine of this exceptional terroir since he purchased it in 1988. Consisting of 50 hectares in Saint-Julien, the Chateau takes its named from a Mr. Braneyre who owned the estate in 1680. Unique soils give Branaire-Ducru wines their typicity and, with other prestigious neighbours, form an appellation recognized worldwide. Chateau Branaire-Ducru’s reputation has been confirmed since it was ranked as a Fourth Growth in the Classification of 1855.

Floral nuances combined with lots of mulberry, raspberry and sweet blackcurrant fruit are followed by a medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, textured, complex wine with soft tannin. It should drink well relatively early on (2-3 years) and last 15 or more. Drink 2015 - 2030.
The Château Branaire Ducru 2005 has a ripe bouquet with red berry fruit laced with marmalade, cedar and sous-bois. It is a little more approachable than its peers, more expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a little grainy in texture with a well balanced cedar-infused finish that is quite linear and strict. This will be earlier drinking than other 2005 Saint Juliens, but its easy-going style belies what will probably be a long-term wine. Drink 2018 - 2040
Very pretty flowers, berry and cherry on the nose, with just a hint of currant. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a medium finish. Lots of fruit and focused character. We will see if it equals the 2003.
Tasted blind. Blackish crimson. Sweet and relatively simple on the nose. Charming but not subtle. Chunky tannins. Dry finish. Drink 2017-2036
