53% Cabernet Sauvignon 39% Merlot 8% Cabernet Franc

“A very complex nose dominated by red fruit aromas (raspberry, black berry) expressing great maturity. Notes of vanilla and spices (white pepper). Showing a beautiful bouquet when aerated. A good solid `attack` and fullness in the mouth. Gives the impression of a round and powerful wine. Finesse and elegance of the tannins are very typical of Brane. The mid-palate is dense, while the finish is long, with rich back-whiffs of vivid fruit.” – Winemaker`s notes

Product Description

53% Cabernet Sauvignon 39% Merlot 8% Cabernet Franc

“The 21st-century Brane-Cantenac of Capdeville and Lurton is very different to the Brane-Cantenac of the 1970s and 1980s; the many changes put in place in the vineyard and chai, have made sure of that. Undoubtedly more appealing than it used to be, reborn and yet still moulded in an elegant and linear style rather than the rich, oak-infused wines other `revitalised` estates can turn out. I once wrote, when Henri Lurton had been in the job a little over ten years, that there were signs of promise at Brane-Cantenac. Now that he has been in the hot seat for ten more years it is clear that my impressions were correct, Brane-Cantenac is once more a serious contender in Margaux” – The wine doctor, Kris Kissack
