Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru) St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$159

A saturated purple color offers up notes of graphite, plum, raspberry, and blueberry fruit in that distinctive Branaire style. Always a singular wine, even for St.-Julien, the wine boasts superb purity, rich, medium to full-bodied flavors, with loads of sweetness, some subtle toasty oak, and strength and richness that builds incrementally on the palate. A top-flight Branaire, this is the finest wine made at this property since the 1996 and 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. Robert Parker

Gorgeous, soft and true to soil and varietal. Everything I want in Bordeaux, honest and drinking great. I hate to call it simple, but its no-frills character makes for a lovey vin de terroir

Seamless and balanced. Very fresh and harmonious. Beautiful and pure fruit, sweet and savory elements, nuanced earthiness and minerality.

Youthful, classy, nicely balanced with medium weight. Should be even better with another 5 years of age as tertiary character is just starting to show. Excellent effort.
