Chateau Brane Cantenac, 2th Grand Cru Classe, Margaux, 2014
Chateau Brane Cantenac ajalugu ulatub 17. sajandi algusesse, tänapäeval juhib mõisa Henri Lurton, tänu kellele on uuesti istutatud suurem kogus viinapuid, tõstetud nende tihedust ja uuendatud kuivendussüsteemi. Brane Cantenac kasutuses on 75 hektarit maad, millest 55% on Cabernet Sauvignon all.
Sobib hästi koos ulukilihaga või loomalihaga.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 Points
The 2014 Brane-Cantenac has a very classy bouquet, very well defined with blackberry, cedar and tobacco scents, that trademark graphite scent emerging with a few swirls of the glass. It is exactly what you expect from this Margaux estate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, graphite and cedar towards the linear finish that will clearly need several years to unfold. Classic Margaux really, but wise owls will cellar it away for several years.
Wine Enthusiast – 94 Points – Cellar Selection
This is a complete wine, full of both tannins and great swathes of ripe fruit. It has a serious side as well in its solid structure and concentration. The juicy blackberry fruits are beginning to calm down and meld into a fine dense wine that will age very well. Drink from 2025.
