A Sensational Brane Cantenac
24 May 2019

It's easy to lose track of wine’s essential role in the pursuit of the highest possible scores. Namely, fine wine is there to give pleasure, and if there is one region capable of producing the most seductive, pleasurable wines in the world, then it must surely be Bordeaux. As we’ve said many times now, the 2018 vintage has produced scores of wines that will seduce and mesmerise drinkers for many years to come, but Brane Cantenac stands head and shoulders above the others as one such sensational example. In our minds, this is one of the most charming, joyous and delightful wines of the vintage. There is a sumptuousness to the fruit and a glorious texture that coats the palate with sweet berry fruit, whilst notes of rose petals and violets delight the nose. It is deep yet light and vibrant, framed by effortless filigree tannins. Forget scores for a moment, “this is absolutely delicious,” in the words of our esteemed Buying Director. What more can you ask for?! “What strikes me about this Brane-Cantenac is the gorgeous center palate of ripe fruit, which gives an impression of generosity, yet it’s tight and reserved at the same time. Fine and polished tannins follow on and drive this gorgeous fruit. 95-96/100”. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com    Read More
