The Wine Advocate

"Floral nuances combined with lots of mulberry, raspberry and sweet blackcurrant fruit are followed by a medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, textured, complex wine with soft tannin. It should drink well relatively early on (2-3 years) and last 15 or more.

Robert Parker 93 Punkte (Jan. 2015)


"As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, the 2005 is a big, structured, intensely rich effort with raspberry, blueberry, and spring flower garden characteristics, stunning purity, full-bodied power, and good underlying acidity as well as harmony. The hard tannins suggest 8-9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+."

Robert Parker 95 Punkte (Apr. 2008)


"Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has been doing everything right since the late nineties, and, along with the monumental 2003 and 2000, the 2005 is one of his crowning achievements. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of raspberry liqueur interwoven with blueberries, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings, and spring flowers. A big, structured St.-Julien revealing layers of fruit and glycerin, fabulous purity, and full-bodied power and richness, it will be long-lived, but is more backward than either the 2003 or 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030+."

Robert Parker 94-96 Punkte (Apr. 2007)


"Branaire, which has been ratcheting up the quality level over the last 5-6 years, made such a great 2003, I am hesitant to suggest the 2005 is as good, or even better. It will undoubtedly come down to consumer’s personal preference, with the 2003 more exotic and flamboyant, and the 2005 more structured or “classic.” In any event, the 2005 is one of the top Branaires ever made. Its inky/ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of spring flowers interwoven with black cherries, cranberries, cassis, plums, and hints of forest floor, wet rocks, and new oak. With wonderful purity, full body, terrific fruit intensity, a beautiful, expansive texture, and a stunning 45-50-second finish, it should be at its peak between 2011-2030."

Decanter Magazine

"The nose is just utterly delicious, smoky and seductive. This is why you don't drink St-Julien in a great vintage too young, it has suddenly started to sing and take on all these aromatics dimensions. It's displaying a floral, violet edge, with truffles and leather. The fruit is still there but it has started to be accompanied by an orchestra of other flavours. This is my favourite wine in the series, hands down. Showing so perfectly today. The tannins are still there but they are melted, and the whole thing has just come together. 60% new oak.

Drinking Window 2018 - 2030"

Jeff Leve

"This continues improving with each tasting. The tannins have softened and now you find an elegant, soft, refined, and silky wine with all the cassis, red currant, tobacco leaf, mocha, and cedar you could ask for. The finish is bright, fresh, and lifted, with ample sweet, mildly spicy, ripe, red fruits. Give this beauty 60-90 minutes of air before service."

94 Punkte (Sep. 2021)

"Opened in honor of Patrick Maroteaux, who passed away, November 19. Still showing a nice depth of color, the wine offers cassis, cedar, thyme, smoke, and spice on the nose. Decanted for 1 hour, and enjoyed over the next 90 minutes, the wine continued improving and filling out with time. Freshness meshed with sweet, juicy ripe cassis and a beautiful purity of fruit on the palate. There is still a bit of firm tannins remaining, that will continue softening with time. Give this another 5 years and it could merit a better score."

94 Punkte (Nov. 2017)

"Cedar wood, flowers, tobacco and dark red fruits are hidden and require coaxing in the nose. On the palate, the wine is silky, elegant and fresh. This is still quite young and shows a lot of promise. The wine is however, clearly letting you know, there is a nice future ahead if you give it another 3-5 years of bottle age."

94 Punkte (Jun. 2015)

"You can smell, taste and feel the perfectly ripe fruit this wine is made from. Add a kiss of blackberry and cassis, sweet oak and mocha and you're off to the races. This full bodied wine offers a juicy mouth full of Cabernet. Elegant tannins, concentration and depth of flavor keeps everything in balance. This is without a doubt the best Branaire Ducru ever made. Give it 12 years in the cellar, if you can keep your hands off it."

Jean-Marc Quarin

„Pris dans la même caisse que la bouteille goûté en juin, ce 2005 apparaît bien supérieur. Belle couleur sombre et brillante. Nez fin, fruité avec une touche fumée rappelant le cabernet sauvignon. Bouche caressante et ample à la fois au goût vivant avec de l'éclat. Style charnu-élancé. Belle finale savoureuse au grain fin et sans austérité au contraire d'autres. Attendre.“

17/20 oder 94 Punkte (Jan. 2016)


„Servi décanté. Couleur sombre et légèrement évoluée. Nez fruité, épicé et délicatement crémeux. Raffiné dans sa texture dès l'entrée en bouche, puis suave au milieu, le vin se développe à la fois moelleux et énergique. Il prend du gras et une saveur profonde après le milieu de bouche et vient s'achever minutieux dans sa constitution, fin et superbe.“

17.5/20 oder 95 Punkte (Nov. 2013)


„Voici le deuxième millésime vinifié intégralement sous la direction de M. Videau. Le style est un peu plus mûr, me semble-t-il que ce que faisait M. Dhalluin. Couleur rouge sombre, de bonne intensité, dense, pourpre. Nez intense, frais, pur, floral, cacaoté. Très belle entrée en bouche, très, très fruitée, pulpeuse et charnue, se développant sur un toucher fin et un très bon goût de cerise. Très pulpeux au développement, il évolue sur une touche noble et beaucoup de goût. Finale longue sur les arômes de réglisse et de fleurs. Un succès.“

"This is opulent, but with restraint. The fruit is rich, black and delicious. Touches of spice and wood are present, lending complexity to the ripe fruits and balanced tannins. Impressive."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Offenes, würziges Bouquet, blumiger Duft, Holundernoten, recht füllig, irgendwie noch nicht fertig ausgerichtet. Im Gaumen so reich wie noch nie, cremige Tannine, zeigt Fleisch und Fülle, reife Adstringenz, nachhaltiges Finale. Das erste Mal, dass wir ihn bei der Primeurverkostung mit dieser Wertung bedienen. P.S. Auf dem Etikett steht wieder der alte Namen «Branaire-Ducru» und nicht nur «Branaire» wie in den letzten Jahren. Auch sahen wir beim Vorbeifahren mit dem Mietauto eine neue Tafel mit der doppelnamigen Aufschrift. Kehrt Patrik Marroteaux wieder zum alten Namen zurück?"

07: "Viel reife Himbeeren im konzentrierten Bouquet. Stoffiger Gaumen, guter Rückhalt, weist Finessen und Kraft. Sicherlich einer der grössen Weine dieses Weingutes seit der Bestizerübernahme. (18/20)."

10: "Dunkles Granat, recht satt in der Mitte, rubiner Rand mit ziegelrotem Schimmer. Herrlich süsses Bouquet, feine Röstnoten und dominikanischer Tabak, ein Hauch Amarena und Rosinentöne (leicht überreifer Merlot?), dezent rahmiger Schimmer, erste Öffnung. Im Gaumen mit angedeuteter Fülle, noch feine Muskeln im Innern über dem Extrakt zeigend. Gehört sicherlich zu den besten Branaire-Jahrgängen. Wird der 2009er auch so gut?"

René Gabriel 18/20 Punkte - bis 2040



"(66% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 4% petit verdot; 3.68 pH; 13.3% alcohol): Bright dark ruby-red with a pale rim. Blackcurrant, red cherry, minerals and sweet aromatic spices on the enticing, exotic nose. Then pure, clean and refined in the mouth, showing terrific sweetness to the flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry, mocha and wet stone. This sizable wine offers wonderful poise and precision thanks to vibrant but harmonious acidity. The finish is long and seamless, with a plush, tactile mouthfeel. This is an outstanding Branaire-Ducru and easily one of the best wines ever made at the estate. The grapes were harvested between September 20 and October 10"
