2011 Bordeaux – Branaire Ducru

by Charles Lea

Branaire Ducru looks fair value at £335 and joins the list of wines recommended in the 2011 vintage.

Jean-Dominique Videau is rightly proud of this wine, and it was one of very few properties prepared to show us their 2009 and 2010 alongside the 2011. As Jean-Dominique put it ‘‘it’s not as exceptional, but the little brother is from the same family’ – and so it proved when we tasted. They made lower yields in 2011 – 37 hl/ha compared to 47 in 2009 and 42 in 2011.
