K&L Notes

94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Carménère. As usual, this Margaux takes a little time to open up in the glass, eventually revealing scents of blackberry, cedar, mint and a light sprinkling of pencil shavings. That minty element becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine line of acidity. I adore the harmony and texture of this Brane-Cantenac: very svelte and silky on the surface but underneath there is backbone and very fine focus. The finish has a touch of chalkiness, quite saline in the mouth with a long, persistent finish. What an outstanding Margaux this is going to be although like many great vintages it will require several years in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2023 - 2050." (02/2018)

    What a wonderful vintage for Brane Cantenac. At the UGC tasting in SF 1/2018 it was showing absolutely beautifully. Wonderful purity and a top layer of dense wild fruits while offering a lot of smoky spicy notes underneath. Incredibly balance and structure, this is delicious and a wine for the cellar.

    Hints of coffee, spice and red currant fruit is followed by a rich, fleshy texture and velvety finish. This wine is juicy and spicy. Usually not one of my favorites out of barrel this is another winner from Margaux!
