This is a great example of how 2011 is evolving. There's a softness and grace to the fruit that was perhaps not expected in the austere early years - and even during a tasting I did of this wine in late 2017. Today, it's starting to open up, with an emphasis of rose petals and light spices that give the appellation signature but in a less concentrated form than, say, 2010 or 2015. It's enjoyable and good quality, a welcoming bottle that has plenty of complexity to get hold of, and tannins that suggest there's still a long way to go. It speaks of the success of Brane Cantenac in recent years. 0.5% Carmenère completes the blend. 39% of production. Drinking Window 2020 - 2038. Jane Anson, Decanter November 2018

There is a beautiful clarity of fruit to this wine, with cherries, raspberries and flowers on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Crisp and delicious. Extremely well done for the vintage. Try in 2018. - James Suckling
Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château, the 2011 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 37% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and a pinch of Carmenère. It has a more attractive bouquet than the 2012, demonstrating more complexity and fruit intensity: blackberry and raspberry, a touch of cedar and tobacco thrown into the mix. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, the oak beautifully interwoven into the brambly red berry fruit, gently building with a hint of spice and dry tobacco on the finish. There is just a tad more substance than the 2012, yet it remains elegant, and given the vintage it is sophisticated compared to others this vintage. Tasted April 2015. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
Offers a pretty, dusty edge, with lightly mulled cherry and plum notes, stitched with floral hints and a touch of singed sandalwood. Shows good flesh through the finish, with a pebbly backdrop. Best from 2016 through 2026. 8,330 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
