Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is *a dazzling Branaire*." *-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (96 Points)*

Only time will tell whether the 2009, another great effort from Branaire, will eclipse the 2005 and 2003. Certainly at 13.6% alcohol it is the most powerful Branaire ever made, and the final blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the rest C... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet franc. A sweet, seductive nose of raspberry and rainier cherry, mixed with more subtle notes of mint and forest floor. Big, firm tannins coat the palate, and carry the fruit along ... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Branaire-Ducru 375ml

Only time will tell whether the 2009, another great effort from Branaire, will eclipse the 2005 and 2003. Certainly at 13.6% alcohol it is the most powerful Branaire ever made, and the final blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot showcases what a great vintage 2009 is for Cabernet Sauvignon. An inky/blue/purple color is followed by raspberry, boysenberry, crushed rock, graphite, and floral notes, and an opaque, broad, dense, substantial, impressively structured wine without any hardness. It requires 4-5 years of cellaring, and should last four decades or more. (Tasted two times.)
