Chateau Branaire Ducru 2009 is an ample and rich vintage. This Saint-Julien wine contains a typical Medoc blend, with 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Nature was particularly generous with this classified growth of Saint Julien in what was a great year in Bordeaux. The 2009 is a “haute couture” wine with great elegance and a lot of depth.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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 to drink between 2017-2035.
