Château Brane-Cantenac Margaux De Brane 2014
Editors' Choice. Owned by Henri Lurton, one of several Lurtons to own property in Margaux, this estate is performing in high gear. Its second wine is rich and concentrated with solid tannins as well as generous blackberry fruits. It will be impressive as it ages. Drink from 2020.
A sanguine twinge sits amid the modest core of pomegranate and damson plum fruit flavors. A light cedary spine holds the herb-tinged finish. Drink now. 7,500 cases made.
