150cl * Bordeaux, France
Second Growth property Brane-Cantenac is Margaux through-and-through: there is an accent on charm, rather than power here and the 2010 vintage has produced a fleshy, layered style that dances between extravagance and poise. Sweet black fruit and cigar box notes abound. No hurry at all to consume this.
Drinking window: to 2040+

This bottle is part of a wine cellar purchased from a highly respected Master of Wine (MW) with whom I have worked for many years and who is recognised as one of the world’s Italian wine experts. It has been stored in the MW’s own cellar or climate-controlled storage and I have every belief that it is in tip-top condition. However, as with all purchases of this nature there has to be an element of caveat emptor to proceedings – as such, we will not be able to offer refunds or returns on this item.
