Château Branaire-Ducru 2010
It is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23.5% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot including 10% of the vin de presse. Drink now - 2030.
The 2010 vintage has a lovely mélange of red and black fruit, hints of dried blood and autumn leaves suggesting that this is moving into its secondary phase. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, good body and a fresh marine-tinged finish that is an absolute joy.
