2017 Château Brane-Cantenac, Cru Classé Margaux

The nose is floral and elegant - in fact, elegance is the definitive character here. There's real finesse in the tannins, impressive purity of fruit and a long, lilting finish. An excellent result.

TASTING NOTES

Dark currant, berry and fresh herb character. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful. Very structured. Solid finish and length. Better than 2014?
