ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau Branaire Ducru has a long history that goes all the way back to 1680. Patrick Maroteaux bought Branaire Ducru in 1988 from the Tapie family who had owned the chateau since 1919. Extensive technical improvements have allowed Branaire Ducru to become one of the most impressive wines to come out of Saint-Julien. Typically, there is a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, which contributes to the wine's distinctive style and quality.

TASTING NOTES
65% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage; deep ruby colour with jammy black raspberry, spice and toasty oak perfume. Strong, ripe tannins, with fresh cassis, black olive and blackberry on the palate; complex, perfectly balanced, probably the best vintage of Branaire Ducru yet!

FOOD PAIRING
Great with mushroom risotto, lamb with spicy vegetables and aged hard cheeses.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Exceptional value relatively to quality; and a very special, iconic vintage for the chateau. Showing best after 2020.
