This estate has produced an impressive wine for the vintage. It balances acidity, tarry wood flavors and ripe black-berry fruits. Initially it is still showing its structure more than fruit, although this will even out as it matures. (RV)
The dense ruby/purple-colored 2013 Branaire Ducru reveals a floral, blueberry and raspberry-scented nose that leans toward the bluer/redder fruit spectrum indicative of a cooler year. The tannins are sweet; the wine is medium-bodied; and the texture is impressive in this pure, long effort. (RP)
Some currant and cooked plum character, underlying dried flowers. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and pretty.
Fine deep colour and fine vineyard expression, good depth, balance and class for the future. (SS)
This offers perfumed blackberry and black currant fruit, lined with licorice root and fruitcake notes that give way to a grippy, brambly finish. Just a touch chewy at the very end, but this should soften soon enough. Stylish overall. (JM)
Saturated medium ruby. Spicy blackberry, espresso, cedar, flowers and a whiff of green coffee bean on the nose. Tight, minerally and high-pitched on the palate, with blackberry, spice and coffee flavors nicely carried by smooth tannins and brisk acidity. Offers noteworthy intensity and flavor interest for a 2013, but finishes with green notes emerging. Tasted from three different bottles on two different days, with very similar notes. (IDA)
