A sexy, style of wine from the Lurtons at Brane-Cantenac, this wine (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) has a stunning nose of forest floor, licorice, blackcurrants, plums and spring flowers. Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard. In spite of the wine’s stunning forward fragrance and lushness, the color still looks as if it is 3-4 years old, rather than a decade. This is a big-time winner in 2005 and should drink well for at least another 25+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Shows mineral and blackberry aromas with hints of licorice. Full-bodied with soft silky tannins and a long smoky earthy meaty and fruity aftertaste. Long and stylish. Very refined and beautiful. Best after 2012. 15000... Shows mineral and blackberry aromas with hints of licorice. Full-bodied with soft silky tannins and a long smoky earthy meaty and fruity aftertaste. Long and stylish.

Nice dark violet with purple edges. Warmer vanilla and toasted cherry on the nose with herbaceous rhubarb and raspberry hints. Sweet tannins on the front of the palate with raspberry blueberry and sweet tea notes. Well... Nice dark violet with purple edges.
