4 /5

A very expressive nose, powerful with floral notes marked by nuances of vanilla on a touch of red fruit. A frank and elegant attack, good volume and good tannins, with a well-rounded mid-palate and a change in any length. The finish is long, too, and the aromatic retro-olfactory back with smoky notes. A well made wine, fine, typically Brane, with a good aging potential, peak between 15 and 20 years.

4/5

The 2013 vintage will be predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (68%) of their ripeness. A fruity nose for a smooth attack, Brane-Cantenac 2013, expressed in length. A structured wine that will improve with breeding.

Drink or keep: 2016-2025
PAIRING: Guinea fowl or partridge roasted with sweet spices

Red almost purple. Sensual aromas of cherries. Very clear taste of raspberries.
We had it with a deer stew.
I took it with a connoisseur of wines.
