Case of 12 x 75cl
An incredibly pure nose of red fruits and blackberries with an elegant note of spring flowers and perfume. The ripe flavours have a core of dark fruit with notes of sweet spice, toffee and mocha, balanced by a vibrant acidity. Well integrated tannins make this medium-bodied wine attractive and appealing. Beautifully well put together and harmonious. Drink 2018 - 2030
Reviews & Scores
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.
Producer Patrick Maroteaux continues to fine-tune and turn out a succession of brilliant wines from this chateau, which sits across the famous Medoc Route du Vin from Beychevelle.
