Branaire-Ducru, Saint-Julien 750ml 2017France, Bordeaux
'The 2017 Branaire-Ducru is all class and finesse. Bright and focused, the 2017 speaks with a clear, well-articulated voice. I especially like the energy here. Soft and understated in the classic Branaire style, the 2017 offers notes of red and purplish fruit intermingled with expressive floral and spice notes. The 2017 is such a pretty Saint-Julien. Tasted two times.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100 (Mar 2020)
'An elegantly structured wine, this is both juicy and packed with tannins. Ripe berry flavors are equally prominent in this balanced wine. The wine's future is promising; drink from 2024.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100 (Mar 2020)
'A polished style, with a perfumed mesquite note draped over a core of plum and blackberry puree flavors. The finish lingers, with a mineral hint amid the fruit. Pure and aromatic. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2032.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Mar 2020)
