    The 2014 vintage of Château Branaire-Ducru was mainly created from vines growing on the old vineyard of Château Branaire Ducru. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
    2014 Château Branaire-Ducru registers in a style that the Château usually calls "maison”. Indeed, it offers a rich and expressive nose of well ripened, yet fresh fruits. This 2014 vintage palate is fleshy from the attack and then develops into a dense texture. The finish of this Saint-Julien is complex, with a perfect acidity which confers to an exceptional balance.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Branaire-Ducru offers a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, suffused with tobacco and pleasant undergrowth aromas, perhaps just missing the precision of the Beychevelle at the moment. The palate is supple on the entry with a slightly grainy texture, the acidity well judged, a little edginess towards the finish that just needs to must more depth, more drive. Not bad for the vintage, although I would like to see some improvement in bottle. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
