Château Branaire Ducru 2018 Saint Julien Quatrieme Cru Classe 6 x 75cl Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 58% Merlot 33% Petit Verdot 5% Cabernet Franc 4%
This is a fantastic Brainaire with deep and dark fruit, such as blackberries and blackcurrants. Lots of raspberries, too. Full-bodied with firm and creamy tannins and a super long finish. We will see if its better than 2016, but on its way. (JS)
