2009 Chateau Branaire-Ducru - St.-Julien
Wine Spectator: 93 Points
"A ripe, chewy, muscular style, with good cut despite the hefty tar, blackberry, roasted fig and singed apple wood notes. The long, anise-stained finish lets the tarry edge play out, though this shows a touch more finesse than some of its colleagues. Best from 2015 through 2025. 12,000 cases made."
Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points
"Wood dominant, smooth tannins and a open, generous texture. This is ripe and full in the mouth."
Wine Advocate: 96 Points
"Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035." -Robert Parker
