Food Pairings for Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Dark garnet colored wine with brush and animal aromas. Floral, brush, dark cherry and berry and tobacco flavors. Rich and round with a great finish on fruit and spice. Potent! A Bordeaux that has it all.

Robert Parker 90+ Points By no means comparable to their sensational 2005 or 2003, but still an outstanding wine, this singular St.-Julien always possesses notes of spring flowers, boysenberries, black currants, and graphite. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium-bodied, classic Bordeaux displaying a deep ruby/purple color as well as moderately high tannin. It needs 3-5 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades or more. Wine Spectator 90 Points There's lots of blackberry, licorice and tar on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and plenty of fruit. Not the most complex wine, but outstanding. Best after 2014. –JS International Wine Cellar 91 Points Bright red-ruby. Pure, high-pitched nose offers blueberry, dark chocolate, menthol and cedary oak. Suave, sweet and serious, with lovely inner-mouth lift and energy and sneaky density of texture. Hints of pepper and herbs serve to perk up the wine. Not a particularly chocolatey style for Branaire. Finishes with a lovely light touch and plenty of structure for a leisurely evolution in bottle.

External Reviews for Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
The 2006 is similar to the 1996 Branaire, but with sweeter fruit. Coats the palate with beautiful purity, no hard edges, ripe tannin, and intense fruit. This elegant, layered, impressive offering will be at its peak between 2012-2025.
