Already drinking well after some decanting, but has the bones to go quite a while. A lot of fruit, but well contained by the structure. Will age well and great value.

Great, starting to tip toe into maturity with earthy forest floor and mushroom at first that gives way to harmonious currants and cassis, mocha, toast and a long, silky Margaux finish.

Deep purple, slight haze, unfiltered. Violets, sweet flowers. Black plums, blackberry. Med acid & tannins. Full body, long finish.

Second from Brane-Cantenac. The aromatics are there but in the mouth it's texturally lacking with faded fruit, low acidity, almost creamy mouthfeel. Meh.

Deep and pure on the nose. Excellent balance of black fruit preserve, floral notes, and graphite. Dense and gripping. Revealing today, but clearly warrants more time in the cellar.

Very ripe almost jammy black currant and raspberry aromas and flavors with a long finish of allspice, cinnamon and graphite. Outstanding second label Margaux.

2nd label from Brane de Cantenac. same vinification, same optical sorting, but only made with new vines. Forward but with proper cut and grip. Ripe black fruit, vanilla, and sandalwood.
