Château Branaire-Ducru Cover Image

A brief history

Jean-Baptiste Braneyre, the first person to own the estate in 1680, was well aware of the superb winegrowing potential of the gravelly soil located a stone’s throw from the Gironde estuary. The 1855 classification was later to confirm the quality of our terroir.

The original Grand Cru wine of the Château. It is not the work of a lifetime, but that resulting from the continuous passion of several families over several generations. It has become increasingly refined over the years and is now recognised as one of the major wines in Saint-Julien, thanks to its unique characteristics, the “House Signature”, so easily distinguishable amongst many others. The Branaire-Ducru style applies to all vintages, artfully and patiently crafted by enthusiastic winegrowers, who have no doubt about the importance of their legacy and respect for the Terroir.

Same family, different character. While still elegant as needs must, Duluc de Branaire-Ducru offers more fun and is louder, while still seeking excellence and purity. This wine can be enjoyed even at its youngest. Duluc de Branaire-Ducru is well-bred and of good character but can also be laid down and will never be offended by being forgotten in your cellar. And the unique touch of the Branaire-Ducru home style can still be recognised in it, and this is no accident.
