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.

Here, for me, the intensity and the focus is clearer and more enjoyable than in the 2009 - the mouthwatering qualities are quite amazing!

It's full of dark bilberry and inky bramble fruit, tossed in vanilla bean, spices and liquorice, all lifted by some soft floral notes through the finish. 3.7pH, 33% of production.

Focused, refined, elegant and concentrated with layers of sweet, ripe, lush, fruits, blending 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, this is the best vintage of Brane Cantenac I’ve ever tasted. Look for this to age well. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2010&wine=Chateau%20Brane-Cantenac

Pretty red fruits such as cherries in this wine with chewy tannins and fresh acidity. Toasted oak too. Needs time to come together. Dense and complete for this estate. Better than 2009. Better after 2016.

Medium to full-bodied, the palate has bags of bright, energetic fruit with a grainy texture and tons of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.- LPB

Smoky wood and ripe blackberry are among the flavors of a wine that is complex, complete and concentrated. It will certainly age well.

The 2010 Brane-Cantenac is consistent with previous notes, although I observed an accentuated bell pepper scent on the nose.

The palate is very well balanced, typically "classic " in style with quite rigid tannins indicating that this needs a few more years in bottle. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the BI Wines & Spirits 10-Year On tasting. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, March 2011
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.
