St Julien, 4th Growth Classification
*** 95 Points - Robert Parker ***
From the classic 2005 vintage this is one of the greatest Chateau Branaire-Ducru's bottled and a flamboyant and expressive example of St Julien. Highly rated by the critics and for good reason. The wine is structured and rich, full bodied and harmonic.
The wine is still young and will drink best after 2020.
Robert Parker- 95 Points
"As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, …

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification(Special Offer was £59.95 now £49.95
91 Points - Parker
"This forward-styled 2005 possesses a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a big, sweet bouquet of roasted herbs, fudge, espresso, figs, and cherry jam. Opulent, even decadent, with low acidity, but high glycerin and fruit extract as well as a flamboyant fleshiness, this is a stunningly impressive, hedonistic, savory Margaux to enjoy between 2010-2025." Parker, Wine Advocate

Excellent value Bordeaux of this age. As one might expect, not over the top, but a solid enjoyable wine. Still deep red colour. Tobacco nose. Some fruit still left, however cedar and mint dominate the taste. The tannins are soft and rounded.

Medium-bodied, moderately tannic, savoury, and concentrated.
