Deep ruby color. Charming, elegant aroma reveals tones of raspberries, blackberries, mulberries, blackcurrant liquor, which are complemented by light mineral shades, notes of spices, burnt oak and nuances of dark chocolate. Superbly structured, full-bodied wine with tangible, but soft, velvety tannins and a refined aftertaste.
History of wine
A Château Braner-Ducrue is created from four grape varieties classic for Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with an average age of 40 years, and some of them have celebrated their centenary. Each variety is harvested by hand at the peak of maturity and vinified separately. For the production of wine juice is used only the first extraction. The Chateau Braner-Ducrue is aged from 16 to 22 months in French oak barriques, 50% of which is updated annually.
The origin of Chateau Branaire-Ducru vineyards dates back to the 17th century, when they were part of the Chateau Beychevelle estate, Jean Baptiste Branner, acquired part of the land in 1680, establishing the Chateau Braner-Ducrue estate. Today, the farm owns over 60 hectares of beautiful old vineyards in excellent condition. The soil of the vineyards is mainly represented by gravel, due to which the estate wines have an excellent tannin base, allowing the wines to develop over decades.
