Second wine Duluc De Branaire-Ducru is a worthy ambassador for its big brother, Château Branaire-Ducru. Blessed with the same balance, harmony and elegance, Duluc can be enjoyed younger and will still keep for another fifteen to twenty years. Approachable from three to four years old, Duluc combines freshness with fruit, and supple tannins with structure.
