2006 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

SKU #1048043 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Taking advantage of the delicious fruit of 2006, this Branaire-Ducru shows a charming side. It brings out ripe, spicy black plums and black cherry spice to go with the lively, fresh tannins. That’s not to say that there isn’t structure, but today it is the fruit that dominates. *Editors' Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2009)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby. Pure, high-pitched nose offers blueberry, dark chocolate, menthol and cedary oak. Suave, sweet and serious, with lovely inner-mouth lift and energy and sneaky density of texture. Hints of pepper and herbs serve to perk up the wine. Not a particularly chocolatey style for Branaire. Finishes with a lovely light touch and plenty of structure for a leisurely evolution in bottle. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (1/2009)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's lots of blackberry, licorice and tar on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and plenty of fruit. Not the most complex wine, but outstanding. Best after 2014. Inner quote mark (1/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Good lift. Very fluid and juicy. More charm than most 2006 St-Juliens. Racy and stony. Good finish and persistence. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2016)
