A sleeper of the vintage, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Branon displays chocolatey, earthy undertones intermixed with black currants and Asian plum sauce. Medium to full-bodied, rich, impressively endowed, supple and evolved, it can be drunk over the next 10-12 years. (RP)
Serious, full red-red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, mocha and chocolate. Dense, sweet, chewy and concentrated; broad but not heavy. Sweet berry flavors are complicated by soil tones. Finishes with serious but ripe and even tannins and excellent length. The wine's firm underlying acidity made itself felt after 24 hours in the recorked bottle. (ST)
This has a lovely purity of fruit, with stones, blueberries, and sweet tobacco on the nose and palate. Full and silky, with a beautiful texture. Hard not to drink now. Wait until after 2012.
Very appetising and fresh on the nose. Very dense and noble and ambitious. Sappy and long term and very appetising even though the finish is pretty drying. 17.5/20 points (JR)
Juicy and expressive, this polished red delivers bright black cherry, blackberry, espresso and mineral flavors, with leaf and tobacco notes. Very fresh and focused, with firm tannins. (TM)
