Château Branaire-Ducru is situated on the opposite side of the road from Château Beychevelle in the south of the St-Julien appellation. Patrick Maroteaux has owned the property since 1988 and he has invested heavily in new plantings as well as installing a spanking new cuvier and an ultra-modern chai.

Here is a bit of fun, Branaire Ducru trivia for you. In the short story Taste,” written in 1953 by the famous author, Roald Dahl, in which two wine lovers are arguing about wine during a blind tasting, the wine they are discussing is Chateau Branaire Ducru!

Tasting Note: Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Branaire-Ducru has an earthy nose over a core of red and black currants with hints of tapenade, pencil shavings and sage. The medium-bodied palate is firm and chewy, with just enough fruit and a lively finish.

Country: St. Julien, Bordeaux, France

班尼杜克酒莊因「周伯通」這一中文名為中國酒友所熟知,酒莊獨特的氣質與頑童周伯通的性格確實十分相通。酒莊源自17世紀,曾是龍船莊園的一部分,在1855分級中被評為四級莊。 1988年,馬諾圖(Maroteaux)家族接管酒莊,推行了多項修繕和改革措施,如引進重力自流法、擴大葡萄園面積等,促使酒莊葡萄酒品質大為提升。產自2015這一卓越年份的班尼杜克酒莊紅葡萄酒散發出藍莓和黑莓等濃郁香氣,單寧緊緻細膩。
