The 2000 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. It has a really wonderful bouquet that is coming into its own: potent with black truffle and gravel infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline tang on the entry.
A fine deep red color with glints of cherry showing its remarkable youthfulness. An intense nose with a wide variety of aromas: tobacco, honey, wax, rose, licorice and blackberries. A very smooth, round attack. Velvety tannins with excellent concentration and intensity on the mid-palate. Retro-olfaction offers powerful truffle notes.
