BriO de Cantenac Brown Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

9.1

Drank 8/10/10

Part of a lineup of 10 european wines my wife arranged for a birthday tasting with a number of friends.

Rich but not overpowering nose of black berry and black cherry accompanied by cocoa and floral notes. Classic Bordeaux palate of cassis, earth, and cocoa powder finishing with some cherry and medium, well integrated tannins. This, like most of the '15's I've had is very nice young.

3/21/8/5/4 + 50 = 91 pts.

Chateau Brane-Cantenac Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Good cassis and blueberry. Tannins are still firm. The wine is restrained in a way you’d expect from the vintage. — 2 months ago

Brevity is underrated in today’s society Ted.

Dre Washington Mourvedre 2012

Sean Boyd nailed this Mourvèdre! Smoke, tar, blackberry compote, and wildflowers with a touch of salty sea air. In fact, I just want to keep my nose in the glass! I expected something big, like a Bandol. This is certainly relatively full-bodied, but the fruit, lean tannins, and a touch of succulent acidity are harmonious. I suspect this will easily cellar another 7-9 years. Paired with duck breast and asparagus and wild mushrooms. — 4 months ago

Baron De Brane Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend

Fantastic value. Typical Margaux aromatics but lacking in taste. Gritty tannins. I would rather be drinking this at dinner than a $50 Napa cab. — 24 days ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Sweet on the nose and soft on the finish. Merlot is standing out and making this big. Nice. Good value too. — 3 months ago
