Deep and a bit oily and inky on the nose with aromas of black fruit and dusty gravel This has that sweet savory aspect to it with a base of nutty oak,, a really powerful and complex nose. Powerful on entry as well but but tight and a bit austere and blocky in the mouth. Tight and promising today but not showing terribly much in the mouth today, this finishes tight and a bit chunky with nice black currant fruit. Has a lot in reserve. 91pts

Full of ripe Cabernet tannins this is a structured wine thats chunky in character. It elegantly balances fruit and structure resulting in a wine thats sure to be impressive. Wine Enthusiast.

Winemaker's Notes:

*2012 Bordeaux Future. Delivery Fall 2015.*The 2012 Branaire Ducru is a seductive effort that is a credit to this chateau, which did not try to over-extract or push the fruit past what it was capable of providing. The result is an elegant, pretty, mid-weight wine with soft, velvety tannin, spicy mulberry and black cherry fruit, hints of spring flowers and loamy soil undertones, medium body and a moderate finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate (88-90 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival. Summer 2015.*
