Château Branaire Ducru


Château Branaire-Ducru, a fourth growth in the 1855 classification, covers some sixty hectares located on a beautiful mound on the saint Julien-Beychevelle plateau facing the river.

Thirty-five years is the ripe old age at which the vines are maintained, a fine balance made up from
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a little of Petit Verdot grape varieties.


Starting from the harvest, no concessions are made by the eyes of the inspectors at the Chateau, as the attention to every fine detail is always so significant in the winemaking process.

Ageing of the wines is slow and a deliberate process, in fact can take up to 18 months if not longer.

 Over half the oak barrels are replaced every year ensuring Château Branaire-Ducru wines are elegant and characteristically complex providing great ageing potential. 

well known by wine connoisseurs in France and all over the world, what would be greater than to share this enjoyment with you all.
