96 points, Jeannie Cho Lee - Subtle, elegant, quietly powerful, this is one of the best Brane-Cantenacs I have tasted over the past decade. The wine is seamless, with lovely violet, cedar and cassis flavors and silky, dense tannins. A beautiful wine that has both restraint and power.

95 points, Vinous - "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is powerful, structured and explosive in feel." A deep, resonant wine, the 2015 shows off the charts ripeness allied to formative structure and tannic booklet become approachable and more than that. The dark stone fruit, smoke, tobacco, spice and leather flavours pack a huge punch, but it's the wine's balance in the Left Bank in 2015. Brane-Cantenac is a total pleasure bomb. I can not wait to taste it with a little bottle of age. "  by Antonio Galloni

94 points by James Suckling - This is very big and rich wine with dense and rich tannins, lots of ripe fruit. Blackberry, blueberry flavours. Muscular yet polished.

93 points, Wine Spectator - Silky and refined, with seductive crushed plum and raspberry fruit that glides along, perfectly melded with singed alder and mesquite notes along with black tea and warm licorice details. A violet element hangs in the background, adding to the elegance. Best from 2020 through 2035. 12,500 cases made." by James Molesworth

92 points, Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of crushed blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with touches of dried herbs and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, refreshing and elegant in the mouth, with chewy tannins, it has a herbal lift on the finish." by Monica Larner

17,5 Jancis Robinson - Exceptionally deep crimson. Meat and wildflowers on the nose - very interesting. Definitely out of the ordinary. Left-field wine that should not disappoint. Racy and lifted. Really very elegant. Chapeau!
