Decanter, November 2017
2015 was an exceptional vintage in this part of the world, making many second wines a shrewd value purchase. Luckily this doesn't disappoint, although I cannot recommend highly enough that you go for the 2010 at this...   2015 was an exceptional vintage in this part of the world, making many second wines a shrewd value purchase. Luckily this doesn't disappoint, although I cannot recommend highly enough that you go for the 2010 at this point, as the 2015 is still extremely young and tight. You can feel a touch of heat on the finish from the alcohol, which is indiscernible in the grand vin, but you can entirely forgive it given its finesse combined with a swirl of cinnamon and a lick of fun.

(90-91 points) A tight and focused red with red currant and berry character. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a straightforward finish. Second wine of Brane.

Much better in bottle than barrel. With time, the wine has filled out, softened and developed more of its refined, early-drinking, soft textured, floral charm. This is perfect for restaurants today.

The fresh, tensile palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, offering dark cherries, bay leaf and cedar toward the persistent finish. This is much better than the bottle opened at the vertical a few months earlier. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin

A perfumy black tea note weaves around here, while the core of gently mulled cherry and red currant fruit unwinds slowly, letting additional alder and warm stone accents emerge. Shows a light iron echo on the finish.
