Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has been doing everything right since the late nineties, and, along with the monumental 2003 and 2000, the 2005 is one of his crowning achievements. It exhibits a dense ru... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Branaire-Ducru 3000ml

Very floral, showing blueberry, licorice, and mineral on the nose. Full and very silky, with beautifully polished tannins. Long and caressing. This is always very well done and good value for the quality. Best after 2010.

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.

Dark red-ruby. Plum, chocolate and some exotic smoky oak on the nose. Lush, smooth and sweet but not at all over the top; offers unusual volume and breadth for Branaire. The exotic aspect carries through on the palate, and yet this wine is holding plenty of material in reserve. Finishes with building tannins and excellent length. Offers superb potential for aging.

A nice streak of tar runs through the medium-weight core of dark plum, braised fig and black currant fruit. Roasted cedar and sweet earth back fill the finish, while juicy acidity ripples underneath. From Chandacirc;teau Branaire-Ducru of St.-Julien.

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 8andndash;9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015andndash;2030+.
