Possessing the finest aromatics of all the 2004 St.-Juliens, Branaire Ducru offers complex licorice, cranberry, boysenberry, and floral notes interwoven with notions of plums and figs. This dark ruby/... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Branaire-Ducru 750ml

Das Fazit zu Beginn: Château Branaire ist ein exzellenter Saint-Julien, der mit einem interessanten Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis die GeniesserInnen immer wieder von neuem überrascht. Klassisch, ganz klar Bordeaux, Kenner würden auf Pauillac tippen, so präsentiert sich dieses Gewächs im Bouquet. Im Gaumen dann aber unverkennbar Saint-Julien: Die Samtigkeit, die Eleganz und die Harmonie zwischen der Säure- und der Tanninstruktur lassen keine Zweifel offen. Im überzeugenden Finale ein Schmeichler par excellence. Was will Mann oder Frau mehr?
