Why We Love It

Situated along the picturesque Gironde estuary, Chateau Branaire-Ducru (previously named Chateau Branaire (Duluc-Ducru) boasts some of the most exceptional gravel soils in Bordeaux, making it an ideal place for viticulture. In 1680, Jean-Bapiste Braneyre was the visionary who recognized the extraordinary potential of this estate. Alongside its esteemed neighboring châteaux, Branaire-Ducru has become renowned worldwide for producing exceptional wines.

The 1966 Bordeaux vintage was excellent and has continued to show incredible ageing ability, especially for wines from St. Julien. This wine is an rare specimen from a fantastic, but vanishing, vintage. Being able to offer finds like this are why we launched the Cabinet.

Important Notes on Cabinet Wines

Many of the wines we sell in the Cabinet are from old vintages. Ageing can have truly wonderful effects on wine. Those effects are influenced by a range of factors, both within and outside the bottle, meaning two bottles from the same vintage may have different profiles. If you are new to older wines—and if so, welcome!—please keep in mind that you may encounter a range of flavours and aromas not found in younger wines.
