DESCRIPTION
PRODUCT REVIEWS

"The nose is more immediate compared to other vintages, demanding less coaxing and offering attractive cranberry, raspberry, mint and chalk dust aromas that feel well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and good acidity (pH 3.78). This is quintessential Brane-Cantenac, its DNA overriding the leitmotifs of the growing season. Touches of sour cherry appear toward a saline finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is full of freshness even at this early stage, and I suspect it will drink sooner than other recent vintages. 2024-2048"
Score: 92-94 - Neal Martin, vinous.com

"The 2018 Brane-Cantenac is deep garnet-purple in colorand delivers expressive black cherry compote, blueberry coulis and crème decassis scents with suggestions of cigar box, Provence herbs and lavender.Full-bodied with mouth-filling, rich black fruit preserves, it has a velvetytexture and a long, perfumed finish."
Score: 92-94 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate

"What strikes me about this Brane-Cantenac is the gorgeous center palate of ripe fruit, which gives an impression of generosity, yet its tight and reserved at the same time. Fine and polished tannins follow on and drive this gorgeous fruit."
Score: 95-96 - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

"The 2018 Brane-Cantenac captures all of the natural richness of the year. Ample, creamy and resonant, the 2018 offers quite a bit of intensity while retaining its mid-weight sense of structure. Dark red cherry, mint, spice, and dried rose petals are some of the signatures. Even with its obvious volume the 2018 retains lovely aromatic freshness and nuance. The 2018 is an especially juicy, open-knit Brane-Cantenac. Grilled herbs, menthol, spice and anise add an attractive upper-register to the perfumed finish. The blend is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Tasted three times."
Score: 92-95 - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
