2015 Baron de Brane, Margaux

SKU #1406215 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 2015 was an exceptional vintage in this part of the world, making many second wines a shrewd value purchase. Luckily this doesn't disappoint, although I cannot recommend highly enough that you go for the 2010 at this point, as the 2015 is still extremely young and tight. You can feel a touch of heat on the finish from the alcohol, which is indiscernible in the grand vin, but you can entirely forgive it given its finesse combined with a swirl of cinnamon and a lick of fun. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

90-91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight and focused red with red currant and berry character. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a straightforward finish. Second wine of Brane. Inner quote mark (4/2016)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Baron de Brane has one of the more flamboyant Margaux bouquets, boasting precocious red cherry, crushed strawberry and cedar aromas, all very cohesive and displaying good vigor. The fresh, tensile palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, offering dark cherries, bay leaf and cedar toward the persistent finish. This is much better than the bottle opened at the vertical a few months earlier. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A perfumy black tea note weaves around here, while the core of gently mulled cherry and red currant fruit unwinds slowly, letting additional alder and warm stone accents emerge. Shows a light iron echo on the finish. (JM, Web only-2018) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Very juicy and vibrant with lots of sweet fruit. Vivacity defined. 16.5+/20 Inner quote mark (1/2019)

The second wine of the prestigious Margaux producer Brane-Cantenac, is a text-book perfect example of what a Margaux should be, floral with notes of violets, as well as lifted aromatics of raspberries, strawberries and cedar. Very elegant indeed.
