Direct, with a cedar and alder frame that holds sway over a modest core of cherry and red currant fruit. Shows flashes of tar and lilac, with the fruit fading a bit on the slightly grainy finish. Drink now through 2026.
Since Henri Lurton took over Château Brane-Cantenac in 1992, he has made it his mission to produce the best possible wine, reinforcing Brane’s position as a second classified growth in 1855. Henri Lurton selects the youngest plots from the vineyard for Margaux de Brane.
A silky, fruit-driven wine with impressive roundness and red fruit flavours, the wine is accessible in style. It offers an introduction to the wonders of the Margaux appellation and in particular to the signature style of Brane.
