  • Goedhuis, April 2001

    Ch Brane Cantenac is returning to glory after years in the doldrums. 1999 was one ofthe stars of Margaux, and the Lurton family have followed this with an even better2000, which RP reckons to be the greatest since 1961.

  • Neal Martin, Sep 2021, Score: 91

    The 2000 Brane-Cantenac, which I have tasted several times, retains those tropes of warm gravel and black truffle on the nose, although in this bottle I notice a little more red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, still quite strict and classic in style, featuring cedar and tobacco and maybe a little greenness toward the finish, but that merely lends it complexity. While this does not rank among the very greatest wines from the estate, it will continue to appeal to those with a penchant for classic claret. 13% alcohol.

  • Neal Martin, December 2016, Score: 93

    The 2000 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. It has a really wonderful bouquet that is coming into its own: potent with black truffle and gravel infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline tang on the entry. It is not a powerful or huge wine, but there is impressive length here and genuine complexity on the finish, with black truffle, cedar and tobacco notes vying for attention. Henri Lurton oversaw a really quite fabulous, almost aristocratic Brane-Cantenac in this millennial year. Tasted April 2015. Drink 2015-2035. 93/100

  • Robert Parker, June 2010, Score: 92

    Fully mature and very attractive, the 2000 Brane Cantenac, which started a succession of brilliant wines from this famous estate in the Margaux appellation, has a dark plum/ruby/purple color, a sweet, juicy nose of blue, red, and black fruits, and a hint of damp earth as well as subtle herbs. Spicy, round, complex, very lush, and at its plateau of maturity, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years at minimum. This is Margaux elegance and silkiness at its very best.

  • Robert Parker, April 2003, Score: 92

    Undeniably the finest Brane-Cantenac in 40-50 years, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's beautiful aromatics of smoke, black currants, tobacco, earth, and flowers jump from the glass. In the mouth, it is pure, elegant, medium-bodied, with savory tannin and adequate acidity, and a measured yet authoritatively flavored mid-palate and finish. How encouraging it is to see this property get its act together. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2001, Score: 16

    Quite aggressive acidity. Light aroma, definitely riper than most Margaux and notable tannins.

  • Clive Coates, June 2001

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc as in 1999. Less than 50% in the grand vins because quite a lot of young vines eliminated. Henri Lurton has not yet added any vin de presse but he is not sure whether he will or not. Very good colour. Splendid nose. Very rich and ample. Very good integrated tannins. A touch of oak. Medium-full body. Impressive concentration. Very elegant. Lovely long continuation towards the finish. Marvellous harmony and depth of flavour. This isundoubtedly fine. From 2009.

Region

Margaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
