2011 Château Brane-Cantenac, Cru Classé Margaux

Made, interestingly, with a proportion of Carmanère in the blend this year, as a response to temperature change. A little closed on the nose when tasted, but notes of dark berries come through with time. On the palate, this showed an immediate punch of sweet, ripe fruit, followed by a swathe of substantial, structural, but very finely-tuned tannins. The core here is dense and concentrated, balanced by a dart of freshness on the finish. A well-realised wine, with a clean, pure finish.
