Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 87-90

Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, violet and licorice on the nose. Juicy, pure and nicely delineated; dark berry flavors offer more inner-mouth perfume than texture. Rather firm today, but stylish and nicely balanced.

Undeniably the finest Brane-Cantenac in 40-50 years, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's beautiful aromatics of smoke, black currants, tobacco, earth, and flowers jump from the glass. In the mouth, it is pure, elegant, medium-bodied, with savory tannin and adequate acidity, and a measured yet authoritatively flavored mid-palate and finish. How encouraging it is to see this property get its act together.

Subtle aromas of blackberry and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins. Long and caressing. Very fresh, almost tart. An estate going places. 12,500 cases made.

Retail purchase held several years. Decanted 2 hours. Absolutely gorgeous wine, and a can't miss Margaux fragrance. Medium bodied, elegant, but long and complex. Red fruit, well balanced. Peak of youth is now. Can go another 10+ years but why wait? This is a wonderful 2000 vintage and even at $65-75 a special value today. I rate the 2005 just ahead.

still young-ish. Strong barnyard notes, somewhat light on the midpalate, good finish with savory/mineral tones. still very restrained, probably needs a few more years

Opened this early in the morning and left it to breathe until mid-afternoon. Inky in color. Medium legs. Relatively reserved nose highlighted by leather and smoke. On the palate, smooth, mellow notes of coffee and spice, rich tannins but totally integrated. Nothing to distract from the combination of fruit, oak, and tannin - well balanced, elegant.
