Reviewed by Neal Martin Issue 224 Wine Advocate
This is classic Brane-Cantenac down the line: austere at first, almost aloof, but very well defined, and over time it starts revealing lovely tobacco-stained black fruit. The palate is very well balanced with raspberry and wild strawberry on the entry, perhaps more red fruit than I was anticipating.
Veins of undergrowth and cedar are in situ on this very well-balanced, reserved, and classic Margaux boasting a long and persistent finish that feels satisfying, reassuring even. Not a Margaux for those that seek tons of fruit, it is nonetheless a very terroir-expressive wine that will repay those who know that this cru demands preferably 12-15 years in the cellar. Henri Lurton never wavers from his style of Margaux, and it pays dividends here on this great wine for those with patience.
The ultimate holiday gift for any red wine lover!
