Reviews about Château Brane Cantenac 2013



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

I had it with a birthday cake. Someone let me try it.
Very dark Bordeaux colour. Aromas of toffee. Toffee and coffee flavours.

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.
