Branaire-Ducru, St Julien 2015


Region: St Julien

Tasting note:

“Producer Patrick Maroteaux continues to fine-tune and turn out a succession of brilliant wines from this chateau,” comments Robert Parker, “which sits across the famous Medoc Route du Vin from Beychevelle.”

A layered young red with lots of black olives and berries on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. It all comes together at the end with a lovely sweet fruit. – Winemaker

More open than many 2015 St.-Juliens at this stage in spite of the firm, dry tannin structure behind the bright cassis. The tannins need some integration, but with some patience (from 2021 or 2022), this will become a rather fine wine.” – James Suckling – 93 points

This family-owned estate has produced a structured and dark wine with great concentration balanced by acidity and pure, creamy fruit. It is a wine with a good future. The aftertaste leaves juicy acidity and firm tannins. Drink from 2025.” – Wine Enthusiast – 95 points
