More information about Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint - Julien AOC - Château Branaire - Ducru

The Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint from the pen of Ducru from Bordeaux presents a bright, ruby red color in the swirled glass. In the glass, this red wine from Ducru shows aromas of raspberries and roses, complemented by tobacco, cedar wood and blackcurrant. The Ducru Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint presents itself to the wine drinker as wonderfully dry. This red wine is never coarse or austere, as is appropriate for a wine of this renown. On the palate, the texture of this well-balanced red wine is wonderfully dense. The finish of this very mature red wine from the Bordeaux wine-growing region, Saint Julien to be precise, is convincing with a remarkable aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes from the gravel-dominated soils.

Vinification of the Ducru Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint

The starting point for the first-class and wonderfully balanced Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint cuvée from Ducru is Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes. In Bordeaux, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on gravel soils. The grapes for this red wine from France are harvested exclusively by hand when they are perfectly ripe. After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in large oak barrels at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the elegant Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint is matured in oak barriques for a further 16 months.

Dining recommendation for the Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Saint from Ducru

This red wine from France is best enjoyed at a temperature of 15 - 18°C as an accompaniment to boiled veal with beans and tomatoes, cod with cucumber and mustard vegetables or vegetable couscous with beef rissoles.
