The fruity framework and elegance of a Margaux Second Cru Classé
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 wine made from vines planted in the heart of the Brane plateau terroir, which contributes to the elegant, aromatic signature of the estate's wines. The Grand Vin is made from plots of old vines located on the 4th terrace with the most clayey gravel.
A year marked by optimal weather conditions favourable to quality. A mild winter with little rain preceded sunny, dry weather marked by three successive heatwaves. These very special conditions produced an early harvest.
Cabernet Sauvignon (74%)
Cabernet Franc (1%)
Petit Verdot (1%)
