 知名酒評師Rober Parker對這座酒莊可是讚不絕口喔,曾經說:「伯芮杜庫堡(Château Branaire-Ducru)常被收藏投資人忽略,(但)相當受葡萄酒愛好者的青睞……酒莊最好的酒款聞起來香氣非常好,濃郁又層次豐富的酒液就像其他聖朱里安產(St. Julien)區的頂級好酒一樣品質優異。」

 伯芮杜庫堡在1855年舉辦的分級中被評為四級酒莊。123公畝的酒莊位於聖朱里安龍船(Beychevelle)區域,吉倫特河(Gironde River)的左岸。目前的掌權人是Marotteaux家族,每年可釀製180,000瓶的葡萄酒。他們轄下的葡萄園栽種了70%卡本內蘇維濃、22%梅洛、4%卡本內弗朗和4%小維鐸。

 接著讓我們來看看酒莊的釀造作業吧~葡萄發酵過程全程控制在28°C,存放在不鏽鋼酒缸中。浸泡時間平均持續21天。乳酸發酵也在酒缸中進行。酒款接著會放在60到65%新的法國橡木桶中,熟成大約16到20個月。新橡木的數量根據葡萄品質、特性和風格會有所不同。

 整體來說,今天介紹的這款酒相當優雅,帶著黑櫻桃、香草味,有著紫花的光澤,單寧感在尾韻中發揮得很好。風格非常平易近人、乾淨、新鮮且輕盈。餐點搭配上可選擇鴨肉沙拉或是烤火腿牛排等。

 

 Robert Parker has written that Branaire is “largely ignored by speculators, (but) is favored by wine drinkers…The finest vintages are magnificently scented, deep, rich wines that are as good as other top wines of St. Julien.”

 Château Branaire-Ducru is a Fourth Growth Bordeaux according to the official classification of 1855. The 123-acre estate is in St.-Julien-Beychevelle, on the left bank of the Gironde River. It is owned by the Marotteaux family and produces up to 180,000 bottles annually of its Château Branaire Ducru. The vineyards are planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22 % Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.

 At Château Branaire Ducru, fermentation takes place in 28 temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The average length of maceration lasts about 21 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in tank. The wine of Château Branaire Ducru is aged in 60 to 65% new, French oak barrels for between 16-20 months. The amount of new oak varies depending on the quality, character and style of the vintage.

 Black cherry, vanilla and purple flowers shine in this elegant wine, showing fine tannins in the focused finish. Approachable style; clean, fresh and light. Pairs well with duck confit with salad frisee or baked ham steak.
