Brane-Cantenac 2020 released
The 2020 Château Brane-Cantenac has been released for the international trade at £600 per 12×75, 20.5% more than the current Market Price of the 2019. Volumes are reportedly down 50% – that make this an incredibly attractive proposition.
The 2020 also boasts a higher score from Neal Martin, who deemed it “superior” to the previous two vintages. Only the 2020 and the 2016 received 96 points from the critic and are available at a similar price level.
Neal Martin (Vinous) gave the 2020 Brane-Cantenac a barrel range of 95-97 points. He called it “harmonious and poised”; “an absolutely fantastic Brane-Cantenac” and “a must-buy”.
Antonio Galloni awarded a range of 94-96, saying that he “especially admired the sense of classicism and energy here”. “A superb showing from Brane-Cantenac and the team led by Henri Lurton,” he added.
Jane Anson (Decanter) revealed it was “a low-yield wine that has kept an impressively fresh core” and gave it 94 points.
The wine also received 96-97 points from James Suckling and 94-96 from Jeb Dunnuck. Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Advocate) gave it 91-93.
