95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

“Superbly ripe and juicy, this is a solid, powerful wine that also is packed with black currant

fruits. It is richly structured, concentrated and ready for long-term aging.”

94-97 points Wine Spectator

“A fresh bay leaf note leads off, followed quickly by pure, enticing layers of cassis, blackberry

and black cherry fruit that emerge steadily through the long finish. Offers lovely mouthfeel and

purity. A very pretty expression of St.-Julien.”

95-96 points James Suckling

“This is clearly the best wine I have tasted from Branaire-Ducru. Exquisite depth and richness

are on offer, yet this is always framed and focused. Layers of fruit and tannins. So deep and

long. Incredible quality.”

92-95 points Vinous

“Branaire-Ducru is gorgeous in 2016. A rush of inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, violet, lavender

and dark spices give the wine its rich, textured feel. Gracious and nuanced, in the classic

Branaire style, the 2016 possesses lovely depth and sensuality, with no hard edges and terrific

overall balance. Time in the glass brings out the wine's more floral and spiced notes. Above all

else, Branaire is a wine of finesse despite its considerable intensity. It is also arguably the most

polished of the Saint-Juliens.”

94 points Decanter

“Always a supremely elegant, measured take on St-Julien that delivers in spades in 2016. Plush

damson fruit comes through with just the right level of extraction. Beautifully rich, ripe fruit is

joined by touches of oak at exactly the right moment. An exceptional showing from Branaire that

rises above its 2015.”
