flagBordeaux / France

Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the chateau, the 1998 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 56% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. It has a very herbaceous bouquet: tobacco and damp earth/peat that is potent but lacking requisite fruit after 18 years. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, moderate weight, but it is missing some substance towards a very austere finish. I feel that this 1998 is on a downward slope, so I suggest drinking bottles in the near future rather than affording them extended cellaring. Tasted March 2016. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com
