Château Brane-Cantenac, 2ème cru classé 2009

RRP £64.5

In true Margaux style, the nose is lifted, lovely, luminous, and scented. Then on the palate, this is pure, racy, and graceful, with a surprisingly porcelain structure for the vintage – testament to the breed of the cru and perfect picking dates. Wind this round your tongue like a ribbon and then let it unfurl, caressing the top and sides of your mouth. Brane-Cantenac ages formidably well, and this, despite its accessibility now, should be no exception.
