Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , October 2013

(65% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot; 3.7 pH; 12.6% alcohol):  Red with a pale rim.  The fruity nose hints at macerated red cherries, bitter chocolate and dried herbs.  Then big, fat and soft on the palate, with fresh, harmonious acidity providing adequate lift to the black cherry, chocolate and sweet spice flavors.  The long, plush finish offers a concentrated coffee and red fruit cocktail quality.  Still very young and likely to develop more complexity.  As good as this is, Branaire-Ducru is one estate where the 2010 will likely turn out to better than the 2009.
