Tasted on three occasions a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc raised in 70% new oak delivering 13.5% alcohol the Brane-Cantenac 2010 has that trademark very Pauillac style note the Cabernet Sauvignon defining the nascent aromatics with graphite and cedar aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fully ripe tannins a little conservative on the entry but fanning out beautifully on the tightly wound mid-palate. Judicious use of the fleshy Merlot to balance out the Cabernet composed and very harmonious towards the "classic" finish.

Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château, the 2010 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 62% Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose has completely shut down since I last tasted it and cannot compare with the aromatics of the 2009 at present. The palate is a truer indicator of the wine, because it races out of the blocks with its ripe, firm tannins, layers of mineral-rich black fruit with a tingle of spice on the animated finish. Here, it just shades the 2009. Both are sensational vintages for the estate, although I suspect this might have the edge in the longer term. This is a brilliant Margaux with a long future ahead. Tasted April 2015. - Neal Martin

From a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc the wine reached 13.5% alcohol which is high for Brane Canenac. With a pH of 3.70 there is no sensation of heat in the wine.

With a pH of 3.70 there is no sensation of heat in the wine. The Grand Vin represents 33% of the harvest. The wine opens with a delicate perfume of floral jammy dark berries cassis oak and tobacco scents. Fresh blackberry floral licorice and black cherry flavors round ample tannins and a sweet spicy cassis finish are the hallmarks of this wine. This shows more depth and acidity than the 2009.

A fresh floral style with violet and rose aromas followed by a mix of vibrant red currant and blackberry fruit. The dusty finish has good underlying acidity keeping it racy. -J.M.

Balanced and polished with pretty tannins and an attractive fruit. Very elegant for the vintage. Lovely length to the wine.

55% cabernet sauvignon 40% merlot 4.5% cabernet franc and 0.5% carmenere. Aged in 70% new oak. Notes of blackberry baking spice and wet earth reveal themselves on the nose.

Notes of blackberry baking spice and wet earth reveal themselves on the nose. This medium-bodied effort boasts great acidity and tannic structure on the mid palate. However a bit dis-jointed at moment and hopefully will come together over time. It should be left alone for at least a few years and should drink well over the next two decades.
