Château Branaire Ducru

It all started in 1680, when Jean-Baptiste Braneyre saw the potential of this stony terroir, then bought a precious piece of the Beychevelle estate. His descendants, the Du Luc family, built the Château in 1824. The estate was then inherited by a relative, Gustave Ducru and remained in the family until 1919. The official classification of Medoc Grands Crus Classés was established during the 1855 Paris World Fair. Patrick Maroteaux and his family bought Château Branaire-Ducru in 1988. They decided to write a new chapter in the history. He also became an ambassador of Bordeaux and Branaire-Ducru, presiding over the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux from 2000 to 2008, and the Saint-Julien appellation from 2004 to 2017.
