2006 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

SKU #1046980 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel sample. A firm, but generous wine with well balanced fruit and tannins. It has a solid core, surrounded by ripe, sweet fruit, freshened by acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I can't say enough about how beautifully classic, racy, and gracious the wines of Brane Cantenac have become over the last decade. The stunningly elegant 2006 exhibits a sweet, subtle smoke note intermixed with creme de cassis in its medium-bodied style with superb nobility, concentration, and sweet tannin. Possessing a complex, luscious personality with strikingly beautiful, velvety tannins, it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2009)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark As with the Baron de Brane in 2006, this is evolving fairly slowly. It pulls up a little short on the finish, but there is fruit and flesh here with well-defined cassis notes and a full body. Lots to enjoy here. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brane-Cantenac is a vintage that has been rather variable in recent vintages. This was definitely one of the better examples, offering blackberry, mint, sandalwood and cedar on the nose and conveying more energy than I anticipated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, featuring intense blackberry laced with soy, cedar and tobacco. The classic, slightly austere but well-defined finish lingers in the mouth. Excellent! (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fresh and clean with pretty berry and currant character. It’s full-to-medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a clean, caressing finish. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Expressive nose offers black fruits, espresso and musky dark chocolate lifted by an exotic floral component. Juicy, sweet and pliant, with a generosity of texture in the context of the vintage. Has the mid-palate flavor intensity to buffer its tannins and finishes with noteworthy persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2009)

K&L Notes
