Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru) St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

$199

This is an elegant 1982, with blueberry, raspberry, mineral, and spicy oak aromas in the moderately intense, polite bouquet. The color is a healthy dark ruby with no lightening or amber. The wine exhibits firmness in the mouth as well as good flesh, a sweet, ripe entry, medium body, and impressive elegance and length...a model of symmetry and finesse. Robert Parker

Lovely balance. Nice red plum fruit on nose, palate and moderately long finish. Velvety and delicately balanced. Very nice wine.
