Château Branaire-Ducru have this morning released their 2020 vintage for sale en primeur.
Last year, the 2019 vintage of Château Branaire-Ducru was a great success and sold out rapidly, with great quality and a 24.7% discount on the release price. A hard act to follow, but we think the 2020 vintage is very impressive. What was especially noticeable was the refined tannins and silky, textured palate. The fruit is just as lively and as expressive as other 2020s we have tasted, but this creamy texture brought something distinct to our cask sample tastings. The richness of the Merlot fruit in this year has most likely contributed some of this rounded mouthfeel on the palate.
Jane Anson applauds the sense of terroir and elegance in the 2020, awarding it 93 points, with James Suckling scoring it 93-94 points.
