Château Brane-Cantenac 2004

92 points

Margaux, Medoc, Bordeaux. 13%

This is rather fine, with a long life ahead of itself and yet attractive now – hence my high point score.

This wine shows the finesse and wonderful vivacity and lightness (an almost ethereal quality) that Margaux can sometimes have. While there is real structure, dark forest fruits and minerals (a touch of iron). Moderate concentration, it certainly doesn’t taste dense or in the least bit syrupy.
