Margaux, 2eme cru classe, 2016

Still dark in color, the wine is clearly powerful, with notes of black tea, flowers, dark Cuban cigars, and black cherries. Balanced, fresh, harmonious, long, and rich, there is lift, energy, length, intensity, and purity with chalky edge to the finish. This is not the wine for today, you need some patience before it shows really well. If you are not familiar with the level of wine coming from Brane-Cantenac these days, you should be. Drink from 2030 to 2060.
