1995 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

SKU #991613 91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Currant and black licorice, with a coffee undertone. Plummy. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. A beauty. (JS, Web-2007) Inner quote mark

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A beauty in the elegant, restrained, finesse school of winemaking, the dark ruby/purple-colored 1995 Branaire exhibits a floral, cranberry, cherry, and black currant-scented nose intermixed with high quality toasty new oak. Medium-bodied, with excellent definition, supple tannin, and an attractive, alluring personality, this pleasant, measured yet complex wine should drink well young, and keep for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1998)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark crimson. Quite evolved, slightly stewed-fruit nose. Big, dusty berry fruit on the front palate. Then lots of dusty tannin. Bit of a bruiser that should eventually settle down. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

K&L Notes

91 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Ex-chateau bottle tasted at Roberson’s Branaire-Ducru tutorial. The 1995 has a generous bouquet that is a little riper than the 1996 with blackberry, dark plum, a touch of sage and tobacco. Fine definition. The palate is more forwards than the 1996, a little ripe but I prefer the structure on the 1995, a subtle saline touch on the entry, dusky red-berried fruit with cedar and a touch of tobacco on the finish. Lovely. Drink now-2025." (01/2011)
