Cuvée presentation

Rich, fragrant and deep, these wines represent the quintessence of Saint-Julien's style. This wine is elegant and straight with melting tannins. To be tasted after 10 to 25 years of maturing in a cellar.

Information about domain Château Branaire Ducru

Château Branaire's vines, known as Branaire-Ducru, were once part of Château Beychevelle's vast vineyard. Classified as a fourth growth in 1855, it has belonged to a family-owned group headed by Patrick Maroteaux since 1988. The vineyard is located on one of the finest gravelly hilltops in the commune of Saint Julien-Beychevelle. The wine is very supple with an exceptional aromatic richness. Vinification has been carried out in a modern gravity-operated winery since 1991. Pumping of the harvested grapes and the wine is thereby avoided, and the grapes are kept whole and undamaged.
