95/100 James Suckling

Cellaring potential: Drink from 2025 to 2040(+).

More about Brane Cantenac: 

"The 75-hectare vineyard on the left bank of Brane Cantenac is essentially unchanged since it achieved second growth status in the 1855 Médoc classification. The entire vineyard can be divided into 120 separate parcels. It is planted with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Carménère. Carménère was used for the first time in the 2011 vintage. Petit Verdot was planted in 2008. 2017 is the first vintage where Petit Verdot was added to the blend. This is at least the case for the 45 hectares used to produce the Grand Vin de Brane Cantenac. These 45 hectares are planted near and around the château. These vineyards are located just across the Cantenac plateau and constitute the best terroir that Brane Cantenac has. At its peak, the vineyard has an altitude of 22 meters. This parcel is the heart and soul of their wine. Not only for the elevation, but also for the depth of the gravel which can reach 12 meters.

Today, over 20% of Brane Cantenac is farmed using organic farming techniques. It is expected that over time, the number of hectares cultivated using organic methods will increase. Four of these hectares are also farmed using biodynamic techniques."

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
