Château Branaire Ducru, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien, 2000
Maturity:
Keep/Drink
ABV:
13%
90/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2000 Branaire Ducru was picked September 25 to October 10 at 12.7° alcohol. It has a similar bouquet to my previous bottle, unfolding discreetly in the glass to reveal cedar-infused red fruit, while hints of dried blood/meat juices evolve with aeration. The medium-bodied palate is elegant and old-school, offering frayed tannins, noticeable acidity and tobacco and black pepper on the finish, which lacks grip compared to other bottles. Decanting would certainly benefit this wine.

Originally a part of Chateau Beychevelle, the property was acquired by Jean-Baptiste Braneyre and became known as Chateau Branaire in 1680. It was owned by various members of the 'de Luc' family for well over a century until 1875 when Gustave Ducru became the sole owner. The modern era for Chateau Branaire-Ducru began in1988 when the estate was purchased by the Maroteaux family. The wine is aged for 20 months in 50% new oak and is typically rich, brooding and powerful style of Bordeaux.
