Branaire Ducru 2015

Branaire Ducru 2015 was released today for €37.2 per bottle ex-negociant, up 26.5% on the 2014 (€29.4). For London buyers, the release of £395 per 12×75 makes it 36% more expensive than the 2014’s release of £290.

Neal Martin awarded Branaire Ducru 2015 90-92 points, saying that he expected the wine to “rest at the top of my banded score”. Yet while the 2015 scores more highly than many of its older siblings, it is also more expensive. For buyers looking for top Branaire, the 94-point 2010 – available for 6% more at £420 – may well look appealing.
