Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Steven Tanzer 90: Ruby-red. Aromas of roasted plum, tobacco, chocolate and smoky oak. Suave and vinous, with lively acidity giving the wine excellent balance. Not especially powerful but a lovely, classic midweight. 91 points Robert Parker: This is a deep ruby/purple-colored, stylish, sexy concoction of raspberries, graphite, smoke, minerals, and flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, seamless St.-Julian displaying velvety tannin, medium body, and sweet concentrated fruit in a stylish, well-constructed, elegant style. The tannin is unobtrusive and well-integrated. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015."" (06/04) 90 points Wine Spectator: ""This is wonderfully perfumed, with blackberry, plum and light cherry character. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Outstanding. Close to the 2000 in quality. Best after 2007."" (03/04) Decanter 4 Stars: Concentrated cassis/cedar wood nose and very ripe fruit, good length and balance. 2006-15. (7/03) Clive Coates 16.0: Medium-full colour. Rich, Cabernet nose. Good class and depth here. Fullish body. Some tannin. Rich, lovely fruit. Very good grip. This has plenty of vigour. Long. Very good but a touch stewed. 2010-2025 (1/05) """
