One of the very best St.-Juliens produced in this poor vintage, the 1974 Branaire is now fully mature, and quite good. A complex bouquet of spicy oak, flowers, and ripe black currant fruit has the depth of a much better vintage. Medium bodied, with good fruit, and just a trace of brown at the edge, this is a noteworthy success for the vintage. Drink up! Anticipated maturity: Now-may be in decline. Last tasted, 3/80.
