As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, the 2005 is a big, structured, intensely rich effort with raspberry, blueberry, and spring flower garden characteristics, stunning purity, full-bodied power, and good underlying acidity as well as harmony. The hard tannins suggest 8–9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030+.

[Barrel sample] A huge, generous, opulent wine, with cedar aromas, a touch of toast and immense black fruits. And it still keeps a delicacy and elegance: very Saint-Julien.

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of black cherry, black plum, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate. Highly aromatic and graceful in the mouth, with lovely acidity giving verve to the cassis and floral flavors. Very pure, penetrating and long. Perhaps less dense than 2003 but more classic. Finishes vibrant and long, with the floral dark fruit flavors outlasting the round, broad, palate-coating tannins.

Good full deep ruby. Intense aromas of black raspberry liqueur, mocha, bitter chocolate and licorice. Superconcentrated, chewy and deep, with a three-dimensional texture and a big structure. Offers terrific sweetness but also an almost medicinal reserve that promises a long evolution in bottle. The black cherry, bitter chocolate, mineral, floral and mint flavors stain the palate and bury the wine’s ripe tannins. “Like a fresh liqueur,” observes owner/president Patrick Maroteau. The sheer volume of this wine should make it approachable in three or four years.

Multidimensional nose, offering keen fruits, a mineral note and smoky oak. Luscious, alluring, with red berry fruits, refreshing acidity and balance. From 2012.
