Chateau Branon 2006
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France
ratings pedigree (past vintages):
"A sensational effort from this garagiste estate in Pessac-Leognan, Branon's 2006 is a blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Its dense purple color is followed by soaring aromas of scorched earth, burning embers, creme de cassis, incense, and charcoal. Full-bodied with superb concentration, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, moderate tannins, and a long finish, it should be at its finest between 2013-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"Full ruby. Sexy aromas of roasted currant, plum, mocha, burning tobacco and smoky oak. Rich, lush, broad and dry, with smoky plum, currant, mocha, tobacco and smoked meat flavors displaying an exotic roasted aspect. For all its volume, though, this wine reveals no easy sweetness. The dusty, building tannins reach the front teeth."
International Wine Cellar
"Displays currant and blackberry aromas, with a stony undertone. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long finish. Very well-structured and pretty. Well-made for the vintage. Best from 2012 through 2016."
