"A deep garnet red with purple hues . An intensely aromatic nose with dominant red fruits (red cherry, plum) and hints of wood , roasted coffee and vanilla. A great aromatic complexity with spicy notes. When swirling the glass, perfect ripeness comes through.maturity is being revealed. A fullwide attack then silky sensations with soft tannins. A very dense, full-bodied structure with a finish packed full of fruit. A particularly long finish, leaving a very lasting, distinct ‘physical’ impression in the mouth. This wine is remarkable. It bears witness to the greatness of Margaux wines in 1999. One of the greatest successes of Chateau Brane-Cantenac."
