Château Branaire Ducru 2014


Matthias Hilse: 92-94 Punkte

Subskriptionsindex: 18/20

La Revue du Vin de France:

"Tout en fruit, juteux et plein, doté d'un joli gras, ce 2014 est charmeur et réussi. La texture évoque les fruits rouges juteux et frais. Encore une belle rússite pour le château."

RVF: 17-17,5/20

Quelle: La Revue du Vin de France N° 591


"Focused and a touch austere for now, with a charcoal edge to the core of black currant and steeped fig fruit. Tobacco and bramble notes check in on the finish, and there's solid acidity in reserve. Well-built and should evolve nicely.-J.M."

James Molesworth: 91-94 Punkte

The Wine Advocate

"The Chateau Branaire-Ducru is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 24 September with the early-ripening Merlot, and finishing on 11 October. The yields came in at 40 hectoliters per hectare and Patrick Maratoux explained the importance of waiting for the correct maturity of each parcel. It has a tightly wound bouquet with black cherries and orange peel aromas, focused if not quite as complex as say, Chateau Beychevelle. The palate is medium-bodied, sinewy in the mouth with tensile tannins. This is a wine that seems to be making a huge effort in this vintage, but I would like to see more finesse manifested on the finish by the time it is in bottle. You know, I think that will develop. That 12 to 13% vin de presse lends this Branaire Ducru impressive sustain on the finish and I suspect that it will coalesce throughout the barrel ageing in two-thirds new oak (though the sample shown at the chateau was 100% new oak)."

Decanter Magazine

"Very well-expressed ripe Cabernet fruit with elegant structure and good length. Never showy at the start of its life, this is a classic Branaire that needs to age.

Drink: 2019-2030"

Steven Spurrier: 17.25/20pts ( 90+/100pts )



Jancis Robinson

"Dark crimson. Energetic nose. Fairly light palate without that much concentration. Round, with less tannic charge than most. Serviceable. A little scrawny on the finish. "

Jancis Robinson: 16+/20



Jeff Leve

"With the blossoms of a black raspberry bramble with a quick sift of white pepper, mocha and earth in the perfume, this wine is all about its elegant tannins, the finesse, freshness and purity of the sweet black and crisp, spicy red fruits. Produced from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The wine reached 13.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.63. 92-93 Pts."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Sattes Purpur-Granat, dicht in der Mitte, lila Schimmer aussen. Selten hatte ein Branaire beim Primeur eine so dunkle Farbe. Reifes Bouquet, fast eine rahmige Fülle anzeigend, die Frucht suggeriert Holunder und Cassisnoten. Im Gaumen fest, ausgeglichene Adstringenz, tolles Rückaroma. Es gibt heuer nur ganz wenige Grand Crus, welche deren eigene Leistung der Jahre 2010 mit dem 2014er toppen. Ich setze diesen genial gelungenen Branaire mit Überzeug auf seine hohe Wertung. Das wäre dann auch das Ende einer langen Nichteinkaufsdurststrecke."

Rene Gabriel: 18/20 -  2024 bis 2048




"The 2014 Branaire Ducru is beautifully textured in the glass. Lavender, plum, mint and spice open up nicely in the glass. Initially quite dense and powerful, the 2014 turns more floral and lifted over time. Sweet red cherry, graphite, violet and licorice add further shades of dimension on the finish. Creamy, silky tannins add to an overall impression of sophistication. The style is round, supple and quite giving, even at this early stage. Tasted three times."

"Lupenreine, kristalline, saftige Art, herrlich frisches Tannin, langes, langes Beerenfinale, supberber, liebenswürdiger und doch gehaltvoller Branaire, den man am liebsten schlucken möchte. Superb."

Peter Bichsel 17,5/20 (Topwein des Jahres)
