Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 85 (2019 Jan.)

The 1987 Brane-Cantenac is a vintage that I have not met for a number of years. Picked October 1–15 after a rain-affected September, the perfectly satisfactory nose presents clean, leather- and bay-leaf-tinged red fruit. The medium-bodied palate is simple but balanced and early-drinking in style, offering fine-grained tannin and tapering toward a light, drying cedar finish. Drink up. Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château .
