Château-Brane-Cantenac Margaux 2008
Wine EnthusiastSolid wine, dark, firm and powerful. The black currant fruits shear through the tannic texture, giving a wine that is juicy, fresh, structured and definitely for aging.
Wine AdvocateThis stunning, evolved, dark plum/ruby-hued 2008 reveals aromas of forest floor, sweet black and red currants, licorice and roasted herbs. Classic, elegant and medium to full-bodied, it provides a sexy, complex, intellectual as well as hedonistic turn-on. Drink this delicious Margaux over the next 12-15+ years.
Wine SpectatorTangy and fresh, with lilac and red currant flavors laced with sweet tobacco and a lively iron note on the finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 11,000 cases made.
