Duluc de Château Branaire Ducru 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: A gorgeous nose of violets and raspberries announces the 2009 Branaire-Ducru.<br/>It is fresh and focused yet powerful and concentrated at the same time with<br/>fine, ripe, silky tannins making the wine extremely approachable even at this<br/>early stage. The sublime quality of the fruit, as ever, is key here, and has a<br/>resulted in an intense yet wonderfully elegant wine.

Records of the Branaire-Ducru estate go back to the 17th century and the château was classified a fourth top growth in 1855. Château Branaire-Ducru currently has fifty hectares of vines, mostly old Cabernet Sauvignon, located in the commune of Saint-Julien.The wine is outstandingly elegant, with a highly individual flavour typical of the finest that its prestigious appellation can offer. Since 1991, the wine has been made in a state-of-the-art vatroom using gravity flow. This enables the grapes to be handled with the utmost care in order to bring out the pure taste that expresses the quality of the vineyard. The wine is château-bottled after traditional ageing in oak barrels. Branaire-Ducru has a second wine, Duluc de Branaire-Ducru, which is primarily made from young vines.

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 through a big finish. Alex Shaw.

A ripe chewy muscular style with good cut despite the hefty tar blackberry roasted fig and singed apple wood notes. The long anise-stained finish lets the tarry edge play out though this shows a touch more finesse than some of its colleagues. Best from 2015 through 2025. -JM Wine Spectator.
