Jean-Baptiste Braneyre, the first person to own the estate in 1680, was well aware of the superb winegrowing potential of the gravelly soil located a stone’s throw from the Gironde estuary. The 1855 classification was later to confirm the quality of Château Branaire Ducru terroir. Composed primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, our wines express their character year in, year out with great regularity, displaying an enormous amount of fruit, freshness, and subtlety. The winemaking team is fully devoted to highlighting these characteristics in every vintage, and Branaire-Ducru is invariably an elegant wine and a quintessential Saint-Julien

Winemaker Notes

Francois Xavier Maroteaux

Chateau Branaire-Ducru

by Francois Xavier Maroteaux
The nose, which is already very expressive, shows a nice complexity of ripe fruit, well balanced by fresher notes. The first impression on the palate is one of silky roundness with impressive volume, overlaying extremely fine tannins. The wine develops slowly and gradually on the palate, following its logical path to a voluptuous mid-palate with beautiful density: always refined – never overpowering. The aromatic complexity, and delicious acidity are omni-present with a lovely long-lasting fruit finish ensuring freshness and lift. The house style of Branaire-Ducru is very evident in the 2020 vintage: expressive fruit, great finesse and balance, wonderful freshness, but always with exceptional depth, density and refinement
