*** 17/20 Jancis Robinson ***
*** 90+ Robert Parker ***
By no means comparable to their sensational 2005 or 2003, but still an outstanding wine, this singular St.-Julien always possesses notes of spring flowers, boysenberries, black currants, and graphite. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium-bodied, classic Bordeaux displaying a deep ruby/purple color as well as moderately high tannin. It needs 3-5 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades or more.
Score: 90+ Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (181), February 2009


Good level and label


From the excellent 2001 Vintage, this Branaire-Ducru scores an outstanding 91 Parker Points.

This is a deep red/purple-colored, stylish, sexy concoction of raspberries, graphite, smoke, minerals, and flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, seamless St.-Julien displaying velvety tannin, medium body, and sweet, concentrated fruit in a stylish, well-constructed, elegant style. The tannin is unobtrusive and well-integrated. Parker, Wine Advocate 2004
