(12-2012) Double magnum. This wine impresses with its power and the depth of its flavor. Refined tannins. I'm not talking about bottles but big containers!

(04-2010) Tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. This is another great, mature Brane-Cantenac that is drinking beautifully at the moment. Compared to the 1989 there is more maturity evident here with attractive notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow, sandalwood, mint and a touch of rosemary. With continued aeration there is a curious scent of menthol in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a typical ’86 rigid backbone. Yet it has wonderful balance, conservative and foursquare, sous-bois dominating the finish. For those with a penchant for the proverbial “classic” claret. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2010.

Brane Cantenac

Henri Lurton is the soul of this estate which already had a good reputation in the eighteenth century. It is true that the terroir is superb. He adds his style, harveting at the height of ripemess, strictly sorting the grapes, stamping the mark of the terroir on the wines, with a richer raw material, a new aromatic complexity and elegance that allow the wines to age longer than in the past. A great Margaux at affordable prices.
