    Baron de Brane, Margaux, 2018

    Henri Lurton's magnificent second growth Chateau in Margaux produces a really good value second wine, Baron de Brane. We've been following this for several years, mainly selling to savvy restauranteurs. Those who have read our review of the Grand Vin will know that Brane is a bit special this year, so it's no surprise that Baron is pretty smart too. Lovely, pliable mid-weight flavours of griotte and cassis coat the palate. This is never going to be profound, but it is perfectly judged, gently extracted, with lovely acidity and supple tannins.

    The 2019 Baron de Brane is made from 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 1% Carmenere. Deep garnet-purple in color, it charges out of the gate with bold scents of crushed blueberries, boysenberries, and ripe blackcurrants, plus wafts of violets, aniseed, and tapenade. Full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, it has lovely plush tannins and freshness to counter the fruit, finishing long and fragrant.

    The 2019 Baron de Brane is the first to use a tiny amount of amphora in the élevage. It offers fine lift on the nose of almost airy red berry fruit, raspberry confit and rose petals; a light loamy scent emerges with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh opening, and a little angular initially, but it coheres toward the middle, delivering tart red cherries, fine acidity and good delineation toward the pencil-lead-infused finish. This is a fine Deuxième Vin from the estate that should drink well for a decade and more. 14.2° alcohol
