A polished, creamy red with blue fruit, such as blackcurrants, and pretty, ripe and fine tannins that fill your mouth. ~93-94 James Suckling
The 2020 Château Branaire-Ducru is vivid purple in color, with a classy, slightly exotic nose of blueberries, plums, violets, and orange blossom, and a kiss of marine-like iron emerging with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and focused on the palate, it’s not massive by any means yet shines for its balance, purity, and length. ~92-94 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 Branaire-Ducru displays a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced blackcurrant cordial, plum preserves and boysenberries scents, plus hints of sautéed herbs, unsmoked cigars and graphite. The medium-bodied palate has a lot of verve, delivering appealing tension among the tightly wound black fruits and grainy tannins, finishing with an herbal lift. ~91-93 Wine Advocate
Rich black cassis fruits with a gourmet charm from the start, and showing very well now. This is lovely, one of the best in terms of readiness to drink over the next few years. And yet you would miss out on its clear future if you did. Lovely depth to the fruit, with the Cabernet and Petit Verdot dominant. A vintage to really recommend, with a more succulent St-Julien character, emphasising a dark black pepper spice alongside the cedar and menthol. 3% Cabernet Franc finishes the blend.
