Marks and reviews
At the helm of Château Brane-Cantenac since 1992, Henri Lurton is passionate about carrying forward the winegrowing venture begun by his ancestors, combining tradition with modern infrastructures designed to enhance the identity of the wines produced from this exceptional terroir in the Margaux appellation.
Château de Brane-Cantenac is a Margaux estate located on the Brane plateau, a unique terroir that contributes to the elegant, aromatic signature of the estate's wines.
Baron de Brane is a wine that pays tribute to Baron Jacques-Maxime de Brane, who owned the vineyard in the 19th century. This Second Wine is made from plots located on the 3rd terrace with deep gravel derived from clayey gravel, planted mainly with Merlot. The result is a delicious, immediately accessible wine.
A year marked by optimal weather, which brought about high quality. A mild winter with little rain preceded sunny, dry weather marked by three successive heatwaves. These very special conditions led to an early harvest.
Baron de Brane 2022 is a blend of Merlot (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%).
