2010 Chateau Branaire Ducru, 4th Growth St Julien (12 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux St Julien

This wine is more backward than I would have normally expected, but nevertheless, it is very impressive. The 2010 Branaire-Ducru displays an inky bluish purple color and loads of mulberry, raspberry, black currant, graphite and floral notes in its intense aromatics. Medium to full-bodied , with sensational ripeness, purity, texture and length, the tannins are slightly more prominent than I remember from barrel, but they are sweet and ripe (as opposed to astringent and bitter). This beautiful wine needs 4-6 years of cellaring and should keep 25-30 years.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Branaire-Ducru starts off just a little bit tired, with roasted nut, balsamic and stewed plum notions giving way to hints of dusty soil, sautéed herbs and dried mulberries. Full-bodied, the palate has a good amount of dried berry flavors with a chewy texture and stewed tea notes on the finish.
