Duluc de Branaire-Ducru Saint-Julien AOC (Château Branaire-Ducru GCC 2nd wine)

Jean-Baptiste Braneyre, the first person to own the estate in 1680, was well aware of the superb wine growing potential of the gravelly soil located a stone’s throw from the Gironde estuary. The 1855 classification was later to confirm the quality of the terroir. In 1952, Jean Tapie bought the estate and is launching a major renovation of the winery, vineyard and chateau with his orangery. In 1988, the property is returned to Patrick Maroteaux, representative of a family of industrial northern France. First modern winery using gravity flow system in 1991.

Every vintage, the now in charge Maroteaux family strives to produce wines faithful to its famous “3 F” motto: “Freshness, Fruit, Finesse”. Indeed, the wines of Château Branaire Ducru draw their deep character from an blend with a strong Cabernet-Sauvignon influence. Château Branaire Ducru, and his second wine, Duluc de Branaire-Ducru are known to lovers of great wines for the regularity and elegance of their deep character.

El Jardín de La Emperatriz Crianza Rioja DOCa

Finca La Emperatriz is a winery with an extensive vineyard estate in Rioja Alta.
Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz is the new project of brothers Eduardo and Víctor, who in 1996 acquired Bodega La Emperatriz, named as such because the first owner of these plots was Eugenia de Montijo, wife of Napoleon III and Empress of France. With this new emphasis and with new projects at hand, the winery changed its name but its high-end wines retain the Finca La Emperatriz signature, the name of the ‘viñedo singular’ they come from, which is given to small, old plots with limited but high quality production and which, in summary, must comply with a series of strict standards to prove their quality. The grapes used to make El Jardín de la Emperatriz Tinto come from plots where the soils are mostly composed of white boulders over a sandy-loam structure and where the vines have an average age of 25 years old.
Since January 2020, the range of Classic Blends and Single Plot wines have disappeared, giving way to four new labels: a high-end red and white called “Finca la Emperatriz Gran Vino”, a blend of traditional Rioja varieties from a “viñedo singular”, a pure expression of terroir, like the great chateaux of Bordeaux; and their respective younger brothers also from the same estate, called El Jardín de la Emperatriz.
