Château Branaire Ducru 1996, 4eme Cru Classé, St Julien
Pure delight, archetype of the grand cru, very elegant and easy to drink. A dense wine with a nicely complex nose dominated by spices. Its color is also always so beautiful. It's a great Saint-Julien with a lot of freshness, without a doubt!
Scorching heat in June. July, very good weather, cool at night. The sun is still present, but regular rains are coming”, this is what the weather reports tell us. In September, the good weather continues, not a drop of water in three weeks. It is the late autumn that will make the reputation of this vintage
