Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

This Merlot dominated blend is always one of our favourite second wines. The result of the longest harvest ever (from early September to mid-October), this displays a lovely core of sweet, fragrant fruit, vibrant and unpretentious, it finishes with bright acidity and well-judged tannins. Very agreeable and will give much early drinking pleasure.

Notes
The 2022 Baron de Brane, matured in 20% new oak, has a fairly straightforward nose: blackberry, raspberry fruit and a distant sea spray scent. The bottle served at the property demonstrates a little more mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. Balanced and fresh, this is not an intense Margaux. Pencil shavings and tobacco notes appear toward the finish. This will start drinking well after two to three years in bottle.
