1999 Brane Cantenac, Margaux

SKU #1004027 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. This has a very intense nose: much more opulent and ravishing than you would expect from a ’99. There is a strange aroma, sort of, sage and onion inflecting the ripe red-berried fruits but it clears up to offer more orthodox scents of saddle-leather and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied, quite a gutsy Margaux, sinewy although perhaps lacking a bit of finesse towards the linear finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fine and elegant red. Aromas of berries, tobacco and barley. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a tobacco, cherry aftertaste. Inner quote mark (3/2002)

K&L Notes

Easily the best Brane Cantenac we’ve tasted in years. Wonderful wine! The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Note - the vineyard is only 20% Merlot, which should give you some idea how much they loved the Merlot crop. Perfect balance. Toasty black fruit nose. Really clean and elegant in the mouth. Good brightness. Refined. Perfectly melded fine acidity will carry this elegant wine for years. Tasted three times with consistent notes.

A beautiful example of classic Margaux drinking perfectly in 2019. Velvety and pure elegant fruits mingled with a soft luxurious leather note and notes of smoke and light spice. A truly elegant wine.
