Château Brane-Cantenac Margaux 2010

This is a resoundingly delicious Margaux from Château Brane-Cantenac.  From the outstanding 2010 vintage, it opens to aromas of brooding black fruits and cedar.  The palate is plump, viscous and nearly full bodied, with ripe and approachable tannins and long length on the finish.  This wine can be approached now, and should benefit from a decade of cellaring.  Rating: Outstanding. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $100+.
