There are 4 units left in stock.
ABOUT THIS WINE
Château Brane-Cantenac is rightly seen as one of the pinnacles of Margaux. Baron is the property’s Second wine, made with the same strict attention as its sibling, but given a shorter, 12-month barrel aging to achieve an aromatic, densely flavored style, with elegant tannins.
This vintage is perfectly à point. Mid ruby color, the Cabernet Sauvignon (60% of the blend) is apparent in the violet, blackberry, and cassis aromas, which intermingle beautifully with savory spice. The palate is velvety and freshly balanced; the finish being immensely satisfying for immediate drinking.
