This St-Julien property is one of Bordeaux’s biggest overachievers. In the heart of the appellation, run by the charming Francois-Xavier Maroteaux, it’s a property which always exceeds expectations, which wows with its sense of balance, purity, and elegance. In 2019, it’s a must-buy.
Dark-berry and blue-fruit character to the firm, chewy tannins that are polished and solid. Medium to full body. Wood and walnut undertones now. Impressive.
Floral-studded nose along with cassis fruits, this is an enjoyable Branaire Ducru that is easy to recommend. Lighter-framed than some in the appellation with its characteristic fine tannins making this a medium-term drinker within the St Julien context. Plenty of juice running through the palate, enjoyable baked earth and menthol notes and a kick of salinity on the finish. A yield of 43hl/ha. 4% Cabernet Franc completes the blend.
