The winemaking for Branon, which is produced from a special parcel of vines that were originally part of the Haut-Bergey estate, is overseen by both Michel Rolland and Jean-Luc Thunevin. The debut vintage, 2000 (650 cases produced), is undoubtedly the real deal. Its opaque purple color is followed by strikingly sweet, smoky, black currant, cocoa, scorched earth, fig, and graphite aromas. Full-bodied, remarkably concentrated, pure, and multi-textured, with a finish that lasts nearly a minute, this fabulous wine will be fascinating to follow. Stunning stuff! Anticipated maturity: 2009-2025. Robert Parker

My wife’s bday and our anniversary spent with Chip and Cheryl. Such a nice bottle and opened up really well.

With an hour in the decanter the wine is a typical Pessac perhaps aggressively so. Lead pencil with overtones of skin of black fruit, but all immensely accessible smooth and silky it was a perfect accompaniment to the steak.
