2003 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

SKU #1023038 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really jammy on the nose, with hints of new toasted oak. Full bodied and generous, with lots of fruit and a soft velvety palate. I like the style. Big and yummy now, but give this three or four years. Inner quote mark (3/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of currant, smoke and coffee. Complex and expressive in the mouth, with lush but lively fruit and a sappy quality. Very pure, shapely wine with an attractive restrained sweetness and no shortage of depth. This largely avoids the jammy side of the vintage. Finishes with broad tannins and very good length. I'd give this a couple of years. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2006)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of blackberry, cherry and light toasted oak. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. Pretty wine. Balanced and refined. Best after 2011. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2006)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Brane-Cantenac’s natural elegance, at the heart of Margaux, doesn’t seem to have survived 2003 as well as some other properties, despite the initial favorable impression at barrel tasting time. That is to say that the fruit is very generous, juicy almost, but its ripeness seems out of proportion to the soft tannins and sweet aftertaste. Other current vintages, particularly 2001 and 2004, have been better. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2006)
