2005 Branon, Pessac-Leognan

SKU #1072651 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This small jewel of a property owned by the Garcin family has been making great wine for a number of years, with the only problem being its very limited availability. Their beautifully deep 2005 has a dark purple color and displays charcoal, blackberry and cassis fruit, with some smoky barbecue notes in the background. This full-bodied, opulent wine is still youthful at age 10, and promises to continue to evolve for another 15-20 years. Pure and stunning, this is a great wine of the vintage. (RP) 96+ Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very good saturated deep red. Cherry, plum, smoke and warm earth on the nose, lifted by spices and menthol. Fat, sweet, lush and impressively concentrated; comes across as more powerful but less pliant today than the 2006, with a firm tannic structure for a wine from this property. Not at all over the top; in fact, this gives the impression of a lower pH than the 2006 today. May be even better than it's showing now. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (5/2008)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of crushed blackberry, tobacco and wet earth follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a clean, fruity finish. There's lots of chocolate, vanilla bean and fruit in the aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dry, fresh, zesty, and transparent. Really appetizing and interesting. 17.5/20 points. Inner quote mark (2/2009)
