Château Branaire Ducru, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien, 2015

Tasting Note:

We were generally very impressed by the balance and harmony of the wines at the St Julien UGC. Few were blockbusters, but they all had ample fruit, a sense of freshness, sympathetic tannins and a sense of cohesion. Branaire is a good honest St Julien; it feels slightly unambitious, but we'd rather it this way than the other extreme. There are some nice perfumed fruits on the bouquet interspersed with herbs. On the palate there is ample bramble fruit; quite wild and engaging. It is a down to earth, gentle style, which displays restraint and charm.
