Château Branaire Ducru 2014
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.
Fecha prevista de entrega: durante el año 2017.

Opinión de los críticos
"The Château Branaire-Ducru is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 24 September with the early-ripening Merlot, and finishing on 11 October. The yields came in at 40 hectoliters per hectare and Patrick Maratoux explained the importance of waiting for the correct maturity of each parcel. It has a tightly wound bouquet with black cherries and orange peel aromas, focused if not quite as complex as say, Château Beychevelle. The palate is medium-bodied, sinewy in the mouth with tensile tannins. This is a wine that seems to be making a huge effort in this vintage, but I would like to see more finesse manifested on the finish by the time it is in bottle. You know, I think that will develop. That 12 to 13% vin de presse lends this Branaire Ducru impressive sustain on the finish and I suspect that it will coalesce throughout the barrel ageing in two-thirds new oak (though the sample shown at the château was 100% new oak)".
