"I'd like to highlight two outstanding wines from the magnificent Margaux, where the wines are known for their elegance and silkiness, along with their characteristic perfumed aromas. We have the ‘silky and seductive’ 96 point 2019 Brane- Cantenac and the precise 96 point 2019 Rauzan-Ségla. Both are serious Margaux wines that will be an excellent addition to any cellar.


With the chaos in the world this year, the Bordelais did something amazing this spring! They were absolutely on point and handled the 2019 vintage Bordeaux campaign brilliantly. To start, they were blessed by Mother Nature with a fantastic vintage and instead of hitting us with elevated prices because the vintage was so great, they offered their incredible wines at insanely fair prices (some even called them low). I like to call it a gift to us wine enthusiasts but, really, they knew there was uncertainty in the marketplace and they wanted to spark interest. And that they did! The 2019 Bordeaux futures campaign is off to a tremendous start... the likes of which I haven’t seen since the 2010 vintage. Please be on the lookout for our periodic 2019 Bordeaux futures offers on our website and in emails." – Jim Knight, The Wine House

These wines are due to arrive fall of 2022
2019 Brane Cantenac Margaux (Pre-Arrival, ETA Fall 2022)
96 Points Decanter
94-96 Points Vinous
93-95+ Points Jeb Dunnuck
93-94 Points James Suckling

96 Points: "A thoroughly moreish and high-quality Brane Cantenac, this is silky and seductive with impressive extraction of the tannins giving backbone and support to brambled and cassis fruits. Plenty of crushed stone and spice to add a gourmet edge alongside the just-smoked oak. Extremely high quality and one of the best Branes I've tasted at this stage. 3% of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complete the blend. For the first time, all of the plots for this wine come from the plateau de Brane just in front of the château, a reflection of how well this terroir withstood the heat of the summer. Drinking Window 2029 – 2044." – Jane Anson, Decanter (May 2019)

94-96 Points: "The 2019 Brane-Cantenac was cropped at 50hl/ha between 18 September and 9 October. Matured entirely in new oak, it is in possession of an almost pixelated bouquet with beguiling blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. I find this less austere than some vintages of Brane-Cantenac at this prenatal stage. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with filigree tannins, very harmonious, not a deep or powerful Margaux, yet very delineated. There is that signature touch of greenness that I often find on Brane-Cantenac on the finish, though I have learned through experience that this is assimilated with bottle age, so have a cool cellar handy. Excellent." – Neal Martin, Vinous (June 2020)

93-95+ Points: "The grand vin 2019 Château Brane-Cantenac takes it up a notch, revealing a deeper, saturated purple color, gorgeous notes of cassis, new leather, cedar pencil, and flowers, medium to full-bodied richness, and the elegance and purity that are the defining features of the vintage. It's almost already hard to resist, with beautiful balance and purity, yet still has solid underlying tannins. Again, the balance here is brilliant." – Jeb Dunnuck (June 2020)

93-94 Points: "This shows exotic aromas of blackberries, wet earth, chocolate and fresh basil leaves. It’s full-bodied with round, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Intriguing and real on the palate." – James Suckling (June 2020)
2019 Rauzan-Ségla Margaux (Pre-Arrival, ETA Fall 2022)
96 Points Decanter
96 Points: "The black fruits burrow downwards through the palate at first, keeping things pretty closed, everything holding its breath, before the fruit opens. There is the precision of Rauzan Ségla that is reminiscent of the 2016, less of the immediate voluptuous impact of 2018 but the density becomes extremely clear in the glass. A serious Rauzan, cassis and cedar, still with a rinse of iris flowers to give it the Margaux touch. 3.73pH. 50/50 1st and 2nd wine. A yield of 42l/ha. Drinking Window 2028 – 2044" – Jane Anson , Decanter (June 2020)
