2008 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

SKU #1177767 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Solid wine, dark, firm and powerful. The black currant fruits shear through the tannic texture, giving a wine that is juicy, fresh, structured and definitely for aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2011)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This stunning, evolved, dark plum/ruby-hued 2008 reveals aromas of forest floor, sweet black and red currants, licorice and roasted herbs. Classic, elegant and medium to full-bodied, it provides a sexy, complex, intellectual as well as hedonistic turn-on. Drink this delicious Margaux over the next 12-15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A lean and firm wine with racy tannins that give it a sleek and exciting texture. Medium to full body, plus currants and cedar character. Needs more time to soften. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full red. Aromatic nose of raspberry, plum, currant, licorice and menthol lifted by a floral element. Vibrant and light on its feet, with strong but harmonious acidity giving energy and lift to the flavors of currant, fresh herbs and flowers. Dry, classic claret with a note of fresh herbs on the subtly long aftertaste. I'd cellar this for three or four years. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (7/2011)
