Tasting Notes

The 2016 Baron de Brane has a crisp, well-defined bouquet of blackberry, black tea and cedar aromas. The medium-bodied palate features succulent brambly black fruit. Clearly the “juiciest” of recent vintages of Baron de Brane, with a pastille-like finish. Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château.

Love the fruit on the center palate here with its brightness and vivid acidity. Citrus undertones and a fresh finish. Well done here, and it’s a second wine!

Brane-Cantenac's 2016 Baron de Brane is a silky, gracious second wine from Brane-Cantenac that is ideal for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Expressive floral and savory notes add brightness to a core of sweet red berry and plum fruit. The 2016 is delicate and a touch lithe in the glass, with superb balance and tons of sheer immediacy.
