Wine Rating: RP 84-86 points Drink by: 2016 - 2021
A blend of 65% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and a pinch of Carmenère. It has a light, slightly dusty and tertiary bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, light tobacco-infused red berry fruit with an austere finish.
The second wine of Brane-Cantenac. The name honours Baron Jacques-Maxime de Brane, who owned the estate in the 19th century.
Blended from vats carefully selected for their suppleness, it is aged just like the First Wine, but for a 12-month period.
