NEW RELEASE : Bordeaux 2019 en primeur - Château Brane-Cantenac

June 2020 

I sadly haven’t tasted Château Brane-Cantenac 2019 – I wish I had.
 
This Château has been delivering a far greater consistency of quality in the last years – always refined, always detailed and always good value. It hasn’t been swayed by fashion; not to produce a bolder, more extracted style in the later 2000s, nor has it had to adapt to the latest swing towards greater elegance…Brane has remained reassuringly Brane; it simply happens to chime with the style that is sought by more and more Bordeaux drinkers.
 
The release price is down 20% on last year even though production is down 40%.

94-96 points, Neal Martin, vinous.com

The 2019 Brane-Cantenac was cropped at 50hl/ha between 18 September and 9 October. Matured entirely in new oak, it is in possession of an almost pixelated bouquet with beguiling blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. I find this less austere than some vintages of Brane-Cantenac at this prenatal stage. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with filigree tannins, very harmonious, not a deep or powerful Margaux, yet very delineated. There is that signature touch of greenness that I often find on Brane-Cantenac on the finish, though I have learned through experience that this is assimilated with bottle age, so have a cool cellar handy. Excellent. 2028-2060
 
Please let us know of your interest.
 
All the best,
 
Simon
