    Product description

    Located in Saint Julien, opposite from Château Beychevelle, wines from Château Branaire Ducru have the reputation to be of great pleasure and value.

    “This fully mature, gorgeous 2003 Branaire Ducru possesses silky tannins, lots of cedary, spice box, floral, black cherry, forest floor and velvety leather-like notes, full body, and an opulent, complex yet elegant style. A beauty of complexity, richness and finesse, it should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. Drink 2014-2020”94pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, August 2014
