Brane Cantenac Premier 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"A magnificent effort, the 2005 is the greatest Brane-Cantenac I have tasted...stunning sweetness, and a glorious perfume of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, black cherry jam, and blackberries, it is an elegantly styled wine with gorgeous concentration, superb harmony, beautifully integrated tannin and acidity, and an expansive, long finish. Yet, the overall impression is one of finesse, elegance, and serious flavor concentration. While it will undoubtedly last 30 years or more, it is hard to know whether it will close down or become more drinkable. I recommend giving it 3-4 years of bottle age and drinking it over the following two and a half decades….93-95" WA 5/07.[Score upgrade 91-93 WA 4/06]
