Tasting Notes


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.


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.
