La poderosa elegancia de la Cabernet sauvignon determina el carácter de un vino que se beneficia del lujo de una cosecha a mano. Los ricos matices aromáticos, todo un festival de frutas y ecos terrosos, se corresponden con una boca de gran personalidad donde sorprende la grata frescura frutal que estalla a mitad de boca y se prolonga en un delicioso final.

"This wine is more backward than I would have normally expected, but nevertheless, it is very impressive. The 2010 Branaire-Ducru displays an inky bluish purple color and loads of mulberry, raspberry, black currant, graphite and floral notes in its intense aromatics. Medium to full-bodied , with sensational ripeness, purity, texture and length, the tannins are slightly more prominent than I remember from barrel, but they are sweet and ripe (as opposed to astringent and bitter). This beautiful wine needs 4-6 years of cellaring and should keep 25-30 years."
"This rich, full wine shows the chateau to be at the top of its form. It's finely balanced, pushing both its fruit and acidity, with the tannins taking the supporting role. With its power leashed, this shows the stylish side of Saint-Julien, although it will certainly age for many years."
