Tasting Note RP 95+/100 With a gorgeously evolved, extremely complex bouquet of forest floor, spring flowers, lead pencil shavings and red and black currants, this full-bodied, dense, ruby/plum/purple-colored wine hits the palate with an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a very layered, profoundly concentrated style that is, at the same time, both powerful and sublime. This gorgeous wine from proprietor Henri Lurton will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and evolve for 25-30 years. WS 93/100 This is dark and grippy, with charcoal, roasted bay and chestnut leaf notes fronting a muscular core of steeped black currant, loganberry and black cherry flavors. Taut plum pit and iron hints thread the finish, revealing a lingering charcoal note. Very solid and suited for aging. Best from 2015 through 2028. NM 95/100 The Brane-Cantenac 2010 has a vibrant, lively bouquet with tarry black fruit, truffle and dried rose petals that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with firm grainy tannins. The acidity here is well judged and lends this focus and class, notwithstanding the impressive delineation on the finish. Masculine and aristocratic, this quintessential Brane-Cantenac will surely age with style. Tasted January 2014.
