Already in 1860, when Jean-Baptiste Braneyre bought the property, he realized the value of these magnificent Médoc terroirs composed mainly of gravel and width located near the Gironde estuary.

4 /5

Chateau Branaire Ducru has a long history that goes all the way back to 1680. In those early days in Saint Julien, Branaire Ducru was a part of the massive Beychevelle estate. When the owner of Beychevelle passed away, he left behind a huge Bordeaux vineyard that was seriously in debt. To pay the bills, the vineyard was broken up and sold to pay their debts. Several new estates were created in St. Julien including Chateau Branaire Ducru.

4/5

BRANAIRE CHÂTEAU DUCRU 2013 is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 31%, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc.
This 2013 vintage is elegant and seductive. I has a nice aromatic definition of fine fruit and accurate. The palate is balanced, on a pretty tasty flesh with delicate tannins. Good acidity and a nice freshness.

4/5

I drank this Château Branaire Ducru once with my coworkers.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour . Smells good, licorice and violet aromas. On the palate was quite thick.
Good wine, even when taken alone.

When you smell it you can feel different aromas such as licorice, violet, .... Warm taste in the mouth.
This wine is rather watery for my taste.
