Chateau Brane Cantenac 2003
€ 71,39 (in. Vat)
|Brand||Chateau Brane Cantenac|
Fully mature and beginning to tire ever so slightly, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc represents only 41% of the production because of tiny yields of 31.3 hectoliters per hectare as well as the selection process of Henri Lurton. Aromas of burning embers, scorched earth and sweet blackberry and black currant fruit emerge from this cuvee. It is an easygoing, fully mature 2003 that has come of age much quicker than I expected.
Aromas of blackberry, cherry and light toasted oak. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. Pretty wine. Balanced and refined.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
