Description and Reviews:
An outstanding wine rating 91 points from the very good 1975 Vinatge.
"Branaire-Ducru has consistently been one of the finest 1975s. I have come to the conclusion that it will never resolve all of the tannin, but the wine has such a large-scaled, muscular, rich, concentrated personality that the tannin level is acceptable. There is plenty of cedar, sweet cassis fruit, vanilla, and lead pencil notes to this powerful Branaire-Ducru. The wine's deep ruby color displays some amber at the edge. I enjoyed drinking this wine young, but it has not budged in its development, continuing to display freshness, richness, and the tell-tale tannin of the vintage." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 1996.
"Beautiful "Margaux-like" floral nose. Nose: iodine and blueberry. Fresh palate with well-structured tannins. Very smooth. Strawberry and cherries. Lovely elegance on the finish. This is not the typical muscular wine: time has smoothed all the edges and made the delectable. A fabulous Branaire that should be snapped up if you see it. Tasted March 2002." Neal Martin, Wine Journal
