"Taking advantage of the delicious fruit of 2006, this Branaire-Ducru shows a charming side. It brings out ripe, spicy black plums and black cherry spice to go with the lively, fresh tannins. Thatís not to say that there isn't structure, but today it is the fruit that dominates."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 92-94
"The 2006 is similar to the 1996 Branaire, but with sweeter fruit. Coats the palate with beautiful purity, no hard edges, ripe tannin, and intense fruit. This elegant, layered, impressive offering will be at its peak between 2012-2025."
