Critic Notes

Extremely dark crimson. Very rich, dark, fruit-compote nose. Lacks a little freshness. I'd drink this sooner rather than later.  Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2030

The 2016 Chantegrive had a slightly odd bouquet with a light geranium scent that I found offputting. The palate is medium-bodied and was much more correct, with firm tannin and crisp acidity, some lovely mulberry and spicebox notes towards the finish. The aromatics corrected themselves with aeration and I ended up appreciating this Graves more than I initially thought. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com

This has some cinnamon and clove spicing evident right on the attack. There are black cassis fruits coming through behind, but the spicy, peppery notes remain throughout the palate, giving this a sense of slight exoticism. You are getting a lot of wine for your money here, good value and well balanced with a real personality. Hubert de Bouard consults. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2032

Dark fruit, torrefaction, smoke and chocolate give the 2016 de Chantegrive its distinctive personality. This is an especially bold, sumptuous wine built on forward fruit and lushness. Tasted two times. Apr 2017, www.vinous.com

Chateau Brane Cantenac - Behind the Bottle
Chateau Brane Cantenac has been a consistent performer in Margaux since Henri Lurton took over the property in 1992. But in the last decade the quality has taken another sharp upswing. Even in a mixed vintage like 2014, Brane produced a beautiful wine. 2015 and 2016 were both outstanding and arguably some of the best wines ever made at the ...
