Expert Reviews

89(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2014

Bright, deep ruby-red.  Sappy aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant and sweet spices are complicated by an intense note of violet.  Bright and juicy in the mouth, offering excellent volume for the vintage as well as noteworthy floral lift to the fresh dark currant and plum flavors.  The wine's sappy quality gives it good inner-mouth energy and early deliciousness, even if it lacks the structure of the best vintages.  On the other hand, by avoiding overextraction the lovely 2011 Branaire-Ducru offers plenty of early appeal.
