2004 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

SKU #1031154 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark New wood and high extraction are the dominant characteristics of this wine. That makes it in a modern, polished style, which will certainly evolve well, eventually arriving at something that is big and bold. Give it 4–5 years for that. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Possessing the finest aromatics of all the 2004 St.-Juliens, Branaire Ducru offers complex licorice, cranberry, boysenberry, and floral notes interwoven with notions of plums and figs. This dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied, elegant effort offers sweet fruit as well as ripe tannins. Inner quote mark (7/2007)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Very expressive aromas of plum, coffee, smoked meat, tobacco and underbrush. Rich, ripe and pliant; very easy to taste after the young 2006. Berry flavors are complemented by chocolate and mint. Not at all overly sweet but offers lovely concentration and balance, and finishes supple and persistent. Lovely claret. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

K&L Notes

Cranberry and black cherry aromas. Sweet seductive aromas. Very sweet wine with long finish. Not big, but nice wine.
