See Decanter experts' rating, tasting notes and drinking window for Château Branaire-Ducru 2008.
Intense, smoky dark fruit, headily spiced cedar and pot pourri aromas. Sensual in texture that is rounded with no hard edges. Classic claret – almost timeless – fruit is in harmony with refined mineral definition. Charming.
