Château Branaire-Ducru 2011 – Saint-Julien, Cru Classé

The nose is fruity and offers minerality, a small concentration and deepness. It reveals notes of ripe strawberry, blackberry and small notes of small black fruits associated with touches of cornflower, small blue fruits as well as discreet hints of liquorice, mushroom and a discreet hint of Sichuan pepper. The mouth is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, gourmandize, an acidulous frame and precision. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, ripe wild raspberry and small notes of very ripe small berries associated with a touch of dry violet, dry rose as well as hints of racy minerality, mushroom and a very discreet hint of tobacco and cardamom. Tannins are elegant and well-built.
