(Barrel tasting) Bright plum and raspberry character throughout. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a velvety, caressing finish. New name for me. One to watch.

Undeniably the finest Brane-Cantenac in 40-50 years the deep ruby/purple-colored 2000 s beautiful aromatics of smoke black currants tobacco earth and flowers jump from the glass. In the mouth it is pure elegant medium-bodied with savory tannin and adequate acidity and a measured yet authoritatively flavored mid-palate and finish... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Cantenac is a reasonably priced St.-Emilion, a commodity that is increasingly difficult to find. While not complex, it is a fruit-driven, fat, ripe, in-your-face effort that will provide tasty drinking over the next 5ndash;6 years.

Impressive aromas of plums and earth in this one. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a smoky, berry aftertaste. Best after 2005.

Subtle aromas of blackberry and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied with a solid core of silky tannins. Long and caressing. Very fresh almost tart. An estate going places. Best after 2009. 12 500 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator.

A solid chunky structure is the hallmark of this big wine. The fruit is black full of dark tannins. Perhaps it lacks subtlety but that is replaced with great power and potential. Wine Enthusiast.

Among the finest Cantenac-Browns of the last three decades, the saturated purple-colored 2000 is a sleeper of the vintage. Loaded with chocolatey black currants intermixed with sweet earth, cedar, and spice box, it exhibits medium to full body, surprisingly ripe tannin for a wine from this estate, a multi-layered texture as well as mid-palate, and a finish that lasts 25-30 seconds. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.
