Chateau Branaire-Ducru 2017, Saint-Julien 750ml
Chateau Branaire-Ducru is located in the Saint-Julien production area in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, France, surrounded by well-known estates. The long and brilliant history of the winery can be traced back to 1680.
This was confirmed by the Bordeaux-class winery rating in 1855, and Chateau Branaire-Ducru was rated as a fourth-growth winery. Since 1919, the winery has been under the control of the Tapie family, but due to poor management, the quality of the wine has plummeted. It wasn't until 1988 that the current owner Patrick Maroteaux took over. After his careful care and careful management, the winery's wine finally reached the recognized quality level again, and under Patrick's hand, the sales were also very impressive. Since 2000, the wines produced by Chateau Branaire-Ducru have always been representatives of the top wines in the Saint-Julien region. Today, in the market, the wine produced by this winery is still considered to be the more cost-effective Bordeaux wine.
Truly a wine of great character, the Château Branaire-Ducru 2017 reveals an olfactory palette that combines in harmony a fruit nature and great complexity. The wine expresses great freshness and elegance on the palate, following a bold attack. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine a strong tannic structure, delicately chiseled by a great finesse and remarkable acidity. The finish offers beautiful length.
Heir to the signature style of the estate, the Château Branaire-Ducru 2017 promises to be one of the property’s very best vintages.
