Two of the very best
03 June 2016

It’s not really a secret that Margaux and Pessac Leognan are two of the best performing communes in 2015. In Brane Cantenac and Domaine de Chevalier, we have two of the most sublime, awe-inspiring wines of the vintage. The Lurton owned Brane is back with a bang with a wine that will rival their exceptional 2009. This is just glorious; a luxurious, effortless wine that seduced us with its glorious perfume and mass of suave fruit. It is right up there with Rauzan Segla amongst the best wines of the appellation. Whilst we agree with Neal’s score (although he is maybe a little on the conservative side), we are at odds with his note. This has tons of fruit, in fact it is one of the ripest and most generous wines we tasted!

Olivier Bernard’s Domaine de Chevalier also mixes it with the elite. The red is serious, concentrated stuff, yet has a grace and subtlety that many Pessacs are lacking. Neal Martin is spot on with his analysis. ‘What a fabulous, intellectual wine from Olivier Bernard. Expect four decades of drinking pleasure - probably more - given my experience of ancient vintages’. We wholeheartedly agree – this is magnificent stuff. The only problem is, we can’t decide between Brane and DDC. It’ll have to be one of each then!
