Warm and inviting, with copious layers of boysenberry, plum and blackberry compote inlaid liberally with singed apple wood, bacon and licorice root notes. Lots of tarry grip underscores the finish. Rather muscular and hefty for the vintage. Best from 2019 through 2029. (JM, Web-2017)
A red with layers of berries, dark chocolate and stones that follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh center palate.
The Château Branon 2014 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured in 100% new oak. The wood element stands out on the nose although there is sufficient fruit underneath to support it. The palate is medium-bodied with dense, quite rigid tannin. There is good density here, firm in the mouth, a 'solid' Pessac-Léognan that will hopefully develop more personality on the finish. (NM)
The 2014 Branon emerges from a two hectare parcel that now technically lies within Haut-Bergey, the Garcin family's other Léognan estate, but that retains its own distinct personality. Iron, smoke, game, savory herbs and dark stone fruits power across tha palate in an intense wine endowed with tons of pure density and mid-palate richness. Big yet well-integrated tannins support the explosive, powerful finish. This is another compelling effort from proprietor Hélène Garcin and her team. The blend is 50% Merlot , 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. (AG)
