    Brane Cantenac is a pure and beautifully classic second growth Margaux that has been over-performing for years now. The 2016 benefits from their slow and careful increase in the percentage of Cabernet in the blend. Long, elegant, velvety and expressive, the flavors and textures in the 2016 are irresistible. The elegance of the wine and the complex layers of flavors and aromatics make this an easy choice for your cellar.

    It’s hard for me to be completely objective about the wines of Brane-Cantenac. It’s one of my favorite properties from the appellation and my “go to” wine when I really want to drink Margaux. I have quite a few vintages in my cellar starting with 2000 and it seems to me that the wines just keep getting better and better with each passing year. The 2016 Brane-Cantenac may be one of the best I have ever tasted. Classically floral with generous ripe, sweet fruit. There is good depth here. Layered, complex, with firm, fine tannins. Still a relative bargain for a Deuxième Cru as the improvement in quality continues to outpace any increase in price.

    One of the top wines of the vintage. Such great texture on the palate. Very sweet mid palate impression. Great balance so it will age very well for 10-20 years.
