Château Branaire-Ducru : One Family, One Ambition.



Raised to the rank of 4th Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Julien in 1855, Château Branaire Ducru is run by the Maroteaux family. When Patrick Maroteaux decided to invest in 1988 in this beautiful property, located on a beautiful rump of the plateau of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, his ambition was to make the wines from this exceptional terroir a reference in Saint-Julien. In just a few years, he was able to retransmit the deep expression of Saint-Julien through wines representative of their appellation. Since then, François-Xavier Maroteaux, Patrick’s son, has been perpetuating his father’s desire to produce fruity wines, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, for a better aging potential.

Their Motto

Every vintage, the Maroteaux family strives to produce wines faithful to its famous “3 F” motto: “Freshness, Fruit, Finesse”. Indeed, the wines of Château Branaire Ducru draw their deep character from an blend with a strong Cabernet-Sauvignon influence. Château Branaire Ducru, and his second wine, Duluc de Branaire-Ducru are known to lovers of great wines for the regularity and elegance of their deep character.

Duluc de Branaire-Ducru 2014 : a commitment.


The Character

More than a second label, Duluc de Branaire-Ducru 2014 is a full-fledged wine in the Château Branaire-Ducru wine range, although it comes from the same vines. Indeed, the care and attention given to the vines and winemaking and the skills of the team are the same as those of the Grand Vin. With an important place given to Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, Duluc also has excellent aging potential, justifying its quirky release: more than 3 years after harvest. It is then an excellent gateway to the world of Grands Crus Saint-Julien.
