- 91-93+ Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "The 2020 Branaire-Ducru displays a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced blackcurrant cordial, plum preserves and boysenberries scents, plus hints of sautéed herbs, unsmoked cigars and graphite. The medium-bodied palate has a lot of verve, delivering appealing tension among the tightly wound black fruits and grainy tannins, finishing with an herbal lift."

- 92-94 Punkte FALSTAFF, Peter Moser: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Zarter Nougat, feines schwarzes Waldbeerkonfit, ein Hauch von Kräutern, schwarze Kirschen sind unterlegt. Saftig, reife Pflaumen, seidige, gut integrierte Tannine, mineralisch, gute Frische, bereits harmonisch, gutes Entwicklungspotenzial."

- 93 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "Blueberry, blackberry, damson and hawthorn, this has juice and tannins with an elegance and really excellent St-Julien character; A lovely Branaire, well placed. Unfussy, this is still not overly exuberant but it has a real sense of sappiness, lift and sinew. 3% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. Drinking Window 2027 – 2042"

- 93-94 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "A polished, creamy red with blue fruit, such as blackcurrants, and pretty, ripe and fine tannins that fill your mouth."

- 92-94 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2020 Château Branaire-Ducru is vivid purple in color, with a classy, slightly exotic nose of blueberries, plums, violets, and orange blossom, and a kiss of marine-like iron emerging with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and focused on the palate, it’s not massive by any means yet shines for its balance, purity, and length."

- 18 Punkte WEINWISSER: "Bouquet mit Veilchenduft, frischen schwarzen Johannisbeeren und dunklem Edelholz, dahinter Brasiltabak und Schokopastillen. Am Gaumen mit weicher Textur, fleischigem Extrakt, engmaschigem Tanningerüst und durchtrainiertem Körper. Im Finale mit schwarzbeerigen Konturen gepaart mit dunkler Mineralik. Top, auch dieses Jahr!"

- 96 Punkte ANDREAS LARSSON: „Floral and elegant with plenty of wild berries, cassis, fine oak, tobacco. Very good volume, rounded and silky with super fine tannin, crushed raspberry and fine spice flavours with a long and lingering finish, really nicely done.“

- 18 Punkte VINUM: „Fruchtig und verführerisch in der Aromatik, dezente Barriquenoten; rund im
Ansatz, spürbar fruchtig mit festem Kern, herrlich seidiges Tannin, sehr langes, fruchtgeprägtes, besonders frisches Finale; herrlicher Wein von idealer Balance, ein Must in diesem Jahr Trinkfenster 2030-2040“

Notizen des Weinguts: Climatology The winter of 2019-2020 was particularly mild and exceptionally rainy, leading to a complete replenishment of the soils' water reserves. The vines budded early and uniformly, 10 days sooner than average, thanks to the mild temperatures. The spring was also mild and wet, conditions favourable to mildew, which required special attention. The flowering, from mid-May onwards, benefited from a short, warm and dry period: the fruit set was ideal. From the 19th June onwards, dry conditions set in, but they remained cool until mid-July. The summer temperatures were then significantly warmer leading to a progressive, high level of water stress in the vineyard. These conditions help form a good build-up of anthocyanins and tannins in the berries, as well as the development of varietal aromas. This water shortage was eased in mid-August with the rains brought by thunderstorms. At the beginning of September, with the absence of significant rainfall, the water deficit returned to the vineyard and the high temperatures encouraged the ripening process. Harvest The harvest began on the 14th September. The maturity of the grapes was excellent and the sugar content was perfectly balanced (13.55% for our blend). The grapes were in perfect health and remained so, through to September 30th, despite some rain at the end of the month. The Merlot berries were of a good size, while the very small Cabernet Sauvignon berries increased the concentration of the wines. Average yields of 40hl/ha at the property: the most stress-affected plots from the summer of 2019 were particularly low in fertility. Tasting Tasting now, Branaire-Ducru 2020 is deep in colour. Already, a very expressive nose of lovely, ripe fruits. After some aeration in the glass, it offers fine, spicy notes and an overall freshness. The palate is very well balanced. Fleshy and yet delicately smooth, with elegant tannins. A long and impressive finish. From beginning to end, the tasting unfolds with a beautiful sense of harmony. Summary The climatic conditions that shaped 2020 alternated between some very difficult and some very beneficial stages. The very high quality of the vintage shows the strength of a great terroir to respond favourably in these periods. 2020 is an excellent vintage with all the style and identity of the Chateau. It combines the complexity of rich fruit, freshness and elegance with a powerful intensity.
