Chateau Branon Pessac-Léognan 2014

“The Chateau Branon 2014 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured in 100% new oak. The wood element stands out on the nose although there is sufficient fruit underneath to support it. The palate is medium-bodied with dense, quite rigid tannin. There is good density here, firm in the mouth, a “solid” Pessac-Leognan that will hopefully develop more personality on the finish. Reflecting on this wine over several minutes, I felt that less oak, say 60% to 70% would have been preferable and allow the terroir to show through.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
