    Description

    Chateau Branaire Ducru 1989
    St. Julien
    owc
    Bottle (12)


    "I have always felt that the 1989 Branaire was better than the 1990, and that was once again demonstrated in this blind tasting. The 1989 was exhibiting far more power and intensity than I expected. It has always been an impressively crafted, elegant, seamless wine with cassis fruit nicely dosed by high quality oak. The wine is currently revealing more expansiveness, fuller body, and plenty of lusty richness, a sure-fire formula for producing a crowd pleaser. There are no hard edges to this opulently-textured, rich, ripe, complex, savory style of wine." (92 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #109, Feb. 1997)


    Estimate: $950 - $1,300.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
