Château Branaire – Ducru 2016

- +
$106.62689,79 HRK

Patrick Maroteaux has owned the property since 1988 and he has invested heavily in new plantings as well as installing a spanking new cuvier and an ultra-modern chai. Branaire-Ducru’s 60 hectares of vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (22%), Cabernet Franc (5%), Petit Verdot (3%). The wines are matured in oak barriques (65% new). The proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend is even higher than that in the vineyards – 80-85% in most years, which is one of the highest in the Médoc. Branaire-Ducru became one of the top Saint-Julien wines. It’s also one of the better values for high-quality Bordeaux in the marketplace today. The wine is elegant, ripe, supple and well-balanced.
