Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru) St. Julien- Beychevelle 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.

Lovely and balanced and earthy. Newer wines are Parkerized, but this is drinking beautifully and classic in style. Earthy nose, palate and finish. Moderately long finish. Nice acid balance. Buy

Elegant sublime nose of berries and cedar, sweet luscious flavors with subdued tannins and a lingering finish.

Stinky wet cork, shoulder high fill, from perfect storage, off nose which cleared after decanting, very light color and soft tannins - still pleasant but fading fruit. Drink now.
