Château Brane-Cantenac is rightly seen as one of the pinnacles of Margaux. Baron is the property’s Second wine, made with the same strict attention as its sibling, but given a shorter, 12-month barrel ageing to achieve an aromatic, densely flavoured style, with elegant tannins. This 2012 is perfectly à point. Mid ruby colour, the Cabernet Sauvignon (60% of the blend) is apparent in the violet, blackberry and cassis aromas, which intermingle beautifully with savoury spice. Palate is velvety and freshly balanced; the finish being immensely satisfying for immediate drinking.
