4 /5

TASTING NOTES:
- View: Château Branaire Ducru 2011 has a dark purple crimson
- Nose: exotic lead pencil shavings, white chocolate, red raspberry jam and blackcurrant perfume.
- Mouth: Step into the fresh and very soft mouth, then it becomes more rich and full in the middle, with bright acids, raising the sweet flavors of ripe black fruit. Finishes with tannins that are built and freshness

4/5

BRANAIRE CHÂTEAU DUCRU 2013 is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 31%, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc.
This 2013 vintage is elegant and seductive. I has a nice aromatic definition of fine fruit and accurate. The palate is balanced, on a pretty tasty flesh with delicate tannins. Good acidity and a nice freshness.

I bought some bottles of this Château Branaire Ducru 2015 at Uvinum.
Bright cherry colour, high layer. Scents of raspberry. Oily, unctuous.

This wine is a typical supermarket wine.
Has a strong colour. Strong scents of coffee and toffee. Sweet taste, fruity.
