Château Branaire-Ducru

Château Branaire-Ducru, 2009

RRP £75

This vintage of Branaire is as good an homage as any to the late Patrick Maroteaux, under whose auspices it was made. It is pure and racy on the nose, with a discreet perfume. On the palate, the wine is fluid, with a lovely medium weight, and not a hint of overheating or alcohol. It is poised and precise, with lots of tightly-wound, concentrated fruit lying in wait. A serious wine.
