K&L Notes

92-94 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Brane-Cantenac was picked from September 17 to October 11 at 45hl/ha, and aged in 70% new French oak. The nose is more immediate compared to other vintages, demanding less coaxing and offering attractive cranberry, raspberry, mint and chalk dust aromas that feel well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and good acidity (pH 3.78). This is quintessential Brane-Cantenac, its DNA overriding the leitmotifs of the growing season. Touches of sour cherry appear toward a saline finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is full of freshness even at this early stage, and I suspect it will drink sooner than other recent vintages." (11/2019)

    2018 Brane Cantenac was another favorite of our group at En Primeur week. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Carmenere, 0.5% Petit Verdot. They produced a very elegant, sexy wine this year, with a sweet core of mocha and cola berry, silky tannins to carry the plush fruit, and overall seamless structure. This will go down as one of their greatest wines yet.

    Brane-Cantenac is a showstopper in 2018, confirmed on multiple tastings where is was often among the best in the room. There is a level of purity and refinement that has shown itself in the past few years but is center-stage in this vintage. Intermingling black and red fruits are surrounded by fine tannin, good intensity, and balanced acidity. There's a ton going on here and it should thrill collectors for a long time to come.
