Chateau Branaire Ducru

Chateau Branaire Ducru




Bereits der erste Eigentümer des Weingutes, Jean Baptiste Braneyre, hatte im Jahre 1680 erkannt, was für ein Potenzial die nur einen Katzensprung von der Gironde-Mündung entfernten herrlichen
Kieselterroirs besaßen. In der Klassifizierung von 1855 wurde ihre Bedeutung bestätigt und offiziell anerkannt. Sie bilden zusammen mit denjenigen unserer prestigereichen Nachbarn eine Einheit, die
in der ganzen Welt für ihre exzellenten Weine bekannt ist. Die Weine von Branaire-Ducru erhalten einen sehr hohen Anteil Cabernet Sauvignon und überzeugen durch Beständigkeit, Frucht Frische und Komplexität. Das Team verfolgt das Ziel, in jedem Jahrgang diese Eigenschaften von Branaire-Ducru, die der Eleganz und dem Stil von St. Julien entsprechen, präzise zu halten.

93+ Punkt vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Branaire Ducru 2016 Staint JulienAntonio Galloni Januar 2019:
The 2016 Branaire-Ducru is powerful. dense and explosive to a degree that is surprising for a wine that is typically much more sensual. There is lovely definition throughout. but readers will have to be patient to catch the 2016 at its very best. Hints of leather. smoke. tobacco and dried flowers begin to open up in the glass. but the 2016 is quite reticent at this stage. In two tastings I found the 2016 unusually closed. Needless to say. it will be interesting to see what time brings.

The best vintage of this wine since 2009! Effusive. fresh redcurrant and cassis aromas give this St.-Julien terrific drive and energy. the elegant. dry tannins beautifully married to the medium body. right through the long. agile finish. Drink or hold.

The 2018 Branaire-Ducru has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an upfront, expressive nose of baked black plums, boysenberries and Morello cherries with an undercurrent of dried mint, spice box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs a very pleasant fruit wallop, featuring juicy black fruits and a firm, grainy frame, finishing long with lovely purity.

Very attractive aromas of currants, tile and sandalwood with black and red currants. It’s full-bodied with a tight, dense center-palate that remains closed in and tight. Yet there is underlying seriousness and length to this. Perhaps the greatest Branaire-Ducru ever made. Try after 2026.

A beautiful Saint-Julien, the 2018 Château Branaire-Ducru reveals a deep purple color as well as ample, earthy cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with sous bois, earth, lead pencil, and cedar. With that classic Saint-Julien pure fruit, sumptuous aromas and flavors, sweet yet present tannins, and a solid spine of acidity, it's going to need 5-7 years to hit maturity yet should keep for 20-25 years or more. I don't think it's going to match the blockbuster 2009 (it's more in the pretty, elegant style of the 2016), but it's a gorgeous, elegant wine you will love to have in the cellar.

6 Dec, 2021 – Very clear fruit character of blackcurrants, orange peel and spices. Some walnut, too. It’s full-bodied with integrated, polished tannins and shows finesse and focus. Love the focused fruit at the end of this. Strength with finesse. Give it four to five years of bottle age. Try after 2024.

BEST EVER für den Wineadvocate
The 2019 Branaire-Ducru unwinds in the glass with aromas of raspberries, blackcurrants, sweet soil tones and hints of cigar wrapper, rose petals and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it's youthfully tightly wound, with terrific concentration, tangy acids, powdery tannins and a long, saline finish. While this is a little reserved out of the gates, its energy and classical proportions will richly reward bottle age.
 
95 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Branaire Ducru 2019 Saint JulienAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Chateau Branaire Ducru 2019 Saint Julien:
The 2019 Branaire-Ducru is rich, layered and sumptuous. Black cherry, licorice, spice, leather tobacco and tar build effortlessly in the glass. The 2019 impresses with its density and pure power, which makes it perhaps atypical for Branaire by its historic standards, but it may be the direction the château seems to be headed in. The aromatics are a bit closed right now, but time in bottle should help take care of that.
 
94 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Branaire Ducru 2019 Saint JulienUnd Neal Martin (Vinous) zum Chateau Branaire Ducru 2019 Saint Julien:
The 2019 Branaire-Ducru is one that I was eager to re-taste in bottle. Deep in color, it has a very well-defined nose of tightly packed dark berries, the tobacco element less obvious than before, and slightly more floral, with light sous-bois notes developing with aeration. The 60% new oak is neatly integrated. The palate shows real vivacity and tension on the entry and delivers crunchy black fruit, touches of blue fruit and a little iodine. Sappy from start to finish, this has a real saline tang that urges you back for another sip. There is definitely is more substance compared to previous vintages, and I wager that this represents the best Branaire-Ducru in recent years. 13.7% alcohol

Leads with vivid violet and cassis, while dark plum, blackberry and boysenberry reduction notes follow quickly. Racy, structured and well-built, with graphite and apple wood driving through the finish. Very pure and aromatic, featuring a nice sanguine echo that lingers at the very end. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2038. 13,000 cases made, 1,950 cases imported.

The 2020 Branaire-Ducru will require more patience than the supple, sensual 2019, but it is another strong effort for this overperforming estate. Wafting from the glass with aromas of crème de cassis, plums, pencil shavings, petals, burning embers and discreet hints of new oak, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a concentrated core of vibrant fruit and fine but youthfully firm tannins that assert themselves on the gently chewy finish.

Plenty of blackberry, blueberry, lead pencil and violet aromas here that follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins that run the length of the wine. So integrated and polished.Changes a lot in the glass. Thoughtful young red. Try after 2027.

Showing beautifully, the deeper purple/ruby-hued 2020 Château Branaire-Ducru offers a deep, masculine bouquet of blackcurrants, plums, smoked tobacco, and iron. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, nicely balanced Saint-Julien with plenty of mid-palate depth, ripe, integrated tannins, and a great finish. Give bottles 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades or more.

94 Punkte vom Wine Spectator für den Chateau Branaire Ducru 2020 Saint JulienJames Molsworth beschreibt ihn im Januar 2023 wie folgt:
This has a lovely floral lead followed quickly by a very pure and precise beam of cassis and bitter plum fruit. Shows ample structure but this is fine-grained and almost silky in feel, while subtle dark tea, savory and iron notes peek through on the lengthy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2026 through 2038. 12,000 cases made, 1,800 cases imported. –JM
