Tasting Notes :The 1999 Branaire is from an under-rated estate. This is a beautifully perfumed effort revealing scents of graphite, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, raspberries, and black currants. The wine is rich, layered, medium-bodied, pure, and elegant. It is a complex St.-Julien with good flavor depth, soft tannin, and unobtrusive acidity. Drink it now and over the next 12-15+ years.
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Smoky coffee and deep blackberry fruit. Great earthiness and liquorice palate with very tarry tannins and raspiness. Good acidic structure.
