Chateau Branaire-Ducru Double 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A very elegant style, with a violet frame to the supple red currant, blueberry and black cherry fruit flavors that mingle with high-toned spice on the finish. Offers fine-grained structure...90-93" WA 04/12 "This is tight and structured, with blueberry and mineral character. Full and firm with excellent tannins for the vintage. Needs at least four years to soften but shows potential: try in 2018...92" JS 02/14 "With dense fruit and a powerful, complex structure, this is one of the best wines from this chateau. Blackberries, black plums and a rich, generous character are all here, along with fine tannins...94" WE 02/14 "Offers mouthfilling layers of plum sauce, blackberry compote and warm ganache, all lined with a charcoal note that adds texture and length. Delivers depth and polish on the finish, with the fruit echoing pleasantly....92" WS 03/14

This wine is based on tannins, yet it also has weight and a complex fruit structure. Its power lies in the density of its texture. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Branaire-Ducru 1500ml
