One of my favourite Margaux’s & yes taking one for the community again so you know wether to buy this £60-£80 French love juice 😁 Knowing the 00, 05, 09 & 10 now I can say it’s going to be delicious & crazy good now 👍 I’m buying more for sure as one of their best 😎

📍 Brane-Cantenac Margaux 2015

🏵 94 with 96+ potential 😍

💨 10 mins in the vSpin 🌪 turned it from a shy child to a loud mouthed blackcurrant beasty 😈

🍇 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc & 1% Carménère 😱

🍷 Opaque blackened ruby w/ purple tint

👃 Smoked oak & new sweet cedar through fresh blackcurrant, crushed wet mineral rock & gravel w/ pencil shavings, young blueberry & minty herbs

Decent young wine. Needed a bit of decanting. Tannin, punchy at start but isn’t with extreme strengthen. Medium body

17.5+/20 (93+/100) В аромате много тонов спелых красных ягод и чёрной смородины, шоколад и специи. Тельное с высокой кислотностью. Удивительно, как за год эволюционировали танины, больше не вяжут и не липнут, обрели приятную бархатистую текстуру. Ягодное во вкусе. Элегантность во всём. #annualclarettasting
