Reviews for 2006 Brane-Cantenac Bordeaux Blend

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, December 2009
(WE91-93 points) Barrel sample. A firm, but generous wine with well balanced fruit and tannins. It has a solid core, surrounded by ripe, sweet fruit, freshened by acidity.

I can’t say enough about how beautifully classic, racy, and gracious the wines of Brane Cantenac have become over the last decade. The stunningly elegant 2006 exhibits a sweet, subtle smoke note intermixed with creme de cassis in its medium-bodied style with superb nobility, concentration, and sweet tannin. Possessing a complex, luscious personality with strikingly beautiful, velvety tannins, it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+. - Robert Parker

Displays plum jam and currant bush on the nose. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe fruit, soft, round tannins and a long finish. Slightly loose knit at the moment, but will come together with bottle age. Builds on your palate... Displays plum jam and currant bush on the nose. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe fruit, soft, round tannins and a long finish. Slightly loose knit at the moment, but will come together with bottle age. Builds on your palate. Needs time. Best after 2013.

Expressive nose offers black fruits, espresso and musky dark chocolate lifted by an exotic floral component. Juicy, sweet and pliant, with a generosity of texture in the context of the vintage. Has the mid-palate flavor intensity to buffer its tannins and finishes with noteworthy persistence.

Fresh and clean with pretty berry and currant character. It’s full-to-medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a clean, caressing finish. Drink now.
