ESTATE HISTORY

Baron de Brane, known as the Napoleon of the vines, acquired Château Gorce in 1833. A winegrowing pioneer, he recognized the reputation and potential of this exceptional terroir, located on Cantenac's finest slopes, and devoted all his energy and fortune to developing it. In 1838, to leave his mark on the property, he renamed it Brane-Cantenac”. The Lurton family bought this prestigious property in 1925, and with the passing generations has maintained the delicate, complex, aromatic style for which Brane-Cantenac is known.

TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS

90 points Wine Spectator

"This shows wonderful finesse. Brick red in color, with a garnet edge. Lovely perfumed aromas of blackberry and chocolate, with a hint of raisin. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. (JS)"

Brane Cantenac's First wine is mainly composed of Cabernet-Sauvignon completed by Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wine has a rich bouquet, blackberry, violets and truffles after a few years. On the palate, typical Margaux tannins are recognizable, both smooth and elegant. Brane is never the most demonstrative, but it is a superb wine that ages with grace.

Best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, salmon, mushrooms, pasta and cheeses.
