2017 Château Branaire-Ducru, Cru Classé St-Julien

Cool and fine with good length, there's excellent drive and purity and a nice finish. It's not overly serious, but there's impressive purity here.

TASTING NOTES

This is very tight and focused with a precise depth of blackberry and blueberry fruit. Full body, melted tannins and a fresh and vivid finish. Shows a compacted style.
