    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." 4/17 . . 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." 4/17. . 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." 4/17. . 92-95 Points; Antonio Galloni; 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. Tasted two times." 4/17. . 92-94 Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Branaire-Ducru is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon; 27% Merlot; 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc picked from 28 September until 19 October at 50 hectoliters per hectare; one of the longest harvest periods at the estate. The nose is quite intense with black fruit infused with pencil shaving and a touch of tobacco; unashamedly classic in style; a little distant compared to some other Saint Juliens but undeniably well defined and full of character. The palate is structured and masculine; exerting a firm grip in the mouth; spicier than its peers with cracked black pepper complementing the black fruit; tobacco and smoke towards the structured finish. There is great length here; very persistent in the mouth; a little "rougher" in texture than others; but that will be smoothed out during élevage and in bottle. Give this Branaire-Ducru five or six years in bottle because it has great potential; one of the best produced at the estate in recent years. (NB This sample was taken from a new barrel; though the final blend will be 60%.)" 4/17 #230. . Zachys Buying Team: “Unequivocally one of the surprises of the vintage. We had this wine on two occasions during en primeur; and all along the Bordeaux trail it had quickly built an insider trade following. Like the neighboring Saint-Pierre; this is one of the wines that easily overachieves with one of its finest expressions to date. It delivers Saint-Julien class and with a richness of fruit and texture that reveals a little of that Margaux-like personality. Like many wines of the vintage the tannins are fine and integrated with balancing acidity that give this wine some lift; energy; and depth. It is one of our top recommendations in this price category.”
