A cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot makes the red wine Château Branaire Ducru 2016 one of the most popular wines in the world. In 2019, this wine from the Wine Region Bordeaux (Saint-Julien) was named one of the TOP 100 wines by the wine magazine Wine Spectator. The climate in this French wine region is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean with warm summers and mild winters, the perfect characteristics to produce a unique red wine.
The Château Branaire Ducru 2016 is a powerful and complex red wine. In its youth it often appears strict due to its high tannin content, only a longer maturing period of at least 5 years in the cellar allows it to develop its full taste.
With 96 points from the Wine Spectator, this French red wine from Bordeaux convinces all wine lovers.

Reviews of 2016 Château Branaire Ducru
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.

PAIRING: Game birds
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.
This wine is rather watery for my taste.
