James Suckling: 92-93/100
A crunchy sense to this, with stone, blackcurrant and blackberry character. Medium body. Mineral and spice coming through on the palate. Creamy-textured finish.

Jane Anson: 92/100

Baron de Brane once again sets the bar high once again in terms of 2nd wines, with fragrant floral aromatics, nuance and depth from the attack and continuing through the mid palate, firm atannins and concentrated black fruits. 20% new oak.

Neil Martin - Vinous: 89-91/100
The 2023 Baron de Brane is well-defined on the nose with black cherries, wild mint and pencil box scents that are nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a grippy entry. There's backbone on this Deuxième Vin, quite feisty on the finish with decent length.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate: 89-91/100
The 2023 Baron de Brane is lively and generous, offering up aromas of sweet cherries, dark berries and raw cocoa, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy palate with sweet tannins and lively acids.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Independent: 87-89/100
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2023 Baron de Brane skips out with lively notes of red cherries, mulberries, and fresh blackberries plus hints of dusty soil and bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate is bright and crisp, with crunchy red and black berry flavors and a zippy finish.
