jebdunnuck.com, June 2019

The 2009 Branaire-Ducru is another killer wine from this vintage that’s drinking spectacularly well at age 10. Based on 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it’s still...

Decanter, January 2023

A nose of inviting chocolate powder and dark fruits - very specifically aromatic, after a few minutes the soft florals and medicinal herbs come into play. Super sleek, but not round to begin with, more direct and...

The 2009 Branaire Ducru has a somewhat conservative bouquet with cedar and graphite scented black fruit, touches of brown spice emerging with time. It never quite clicks into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with...

Wine Spectator, March 2012

A ripe chewy muscular style with good cut despite the hefty tar blackberry roasted fig and singed apple wood notes. The long anise-stained finish lets the tarry edge play out though this shows a touch more finesse than...
