GBP per Case
The 2017 Branaire-Ducru has a darkly-berried, bitter cherry nose, with a little savoury spice. The palate is similarly dark-fruited, with a fabulous sense of energy and excellent persistence. Finely extracted tannins. Tasted twice, the second time with an extra level of flair. Really good wine, cut from classical cloth but with a glimpse of the X-factor.
60% new oak, cropped at 40 hl/ha. Plantings: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.
