Château Branaire-Ducru Saint-Julien

Wine Description

Opulent aromas of blackberry, olives and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big chewy tannins and a long, long finish.

    Hazy, dark purple, faulty, full body, spice and black fruit aroma, off-dry, medium acidity, tannin still strong but smooth, black fruit and red fruit flavor, spice, a bit herb taste, long length. A balance wine with fruity charter. overall it is a good wine with strong St Julian style. after breathing for an hour, tannin become smoother and so as the body. Seems too young and can keep for some more time.
