CHATEAU BRANE CANTENAC - MARGAUX GRAND CRU, BORDEAUX, FRANCE 

Second Classified Growth in 1855.

Deep purple colour. Very complex nose revealing aromas of black fruits, toast, vanilla and floral and fresh notes. In the palate the wine is supple and round, the tannic structure is fine and silky and the finish persists with a very pleasant aromatic back palate. A wine dense, fleshy with a remarkable depth and a perfect balance: refine and powerful tannins. Long potential ageing: 2025-2040

Product Description

The ancient origins of this property date back in the 17th century. In 1838, Jacques-Maxime de Brane, changed the estate's name by adding his name alongside this of the village. In 1925, Léonce Récapet, distiller from the Entre-deux-Mers region and father-in-law of François Lurton, took over Brane-Cantenac as well as 40% of Château Margaux.

After the death of Léonce, François was forced to accept the sale of his shares of Château Margaux. However, he kept Brane-Cantenac, which he left to his son, Lucien, in 1954. Lucien, a qualified agricultural engineer, settled at Brane with his wife Marie-Jeanne. He put Brane back on the top rung. Henri, his son, took over the estate in 1992, putting into practice his worldwide viticultural experience.
