A superlative performance from Branaire Ducru, way above my previous appraisals for Mon. Maroutoux’s Saint Julien estate. On the nose: blackberry, damson, even a touch of marmalade developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, ripe tannins, very powerful and intense, toasty black fruit laced with tar and graphite with a tannic, bold finish - Excellent!
Krug Rosé is the only prestige cuvee rosé to be blended from a palette of wines from three different grape varieties, and from a wide range of vintages. A resting time of at least five years in Krug’s cellars gives their Rosé its subtle bubbles and long-lasting elegance. Their Rosé is extraordinary in the way it combines elegance, finesse and power.
