The 2011 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 37% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and a pinch of Carmenère. Intense, vivid color. Very delicate, subtle fruit-driven nose with attractive floral notes. In the mouth, smooth and full-flavored, with very aromatic notes on the mid-palette, becoming increasingly powerful on the finish. Excellent length. This wine is pure and elegant, with great finesse and delicacy, and underpinned by a very fine structure.
