Château Brane Cantenac

Owned by AXA Millésimes since 1989. Under the direction of Christian Seely this château has been totally transformed and is producing excellent wine.

Tasting Notes

Planted on 72 hectares of fine gravel and clay that forms the 'Brane' of Cantenac - a plateau that regularly produces exceptional wines. The nose is softly lush, with notes of crunchy blackcurrant and plum, followed by a palate of fresh red fruits interlaced with mulled black cherry that shows both concentration and compactness. There is a careful use of oak and a fresh minerality, as well as a degree of salinity that makes a perfect balance with the ripeness of fruit. The finish is long, firm and powerful.

Vinification

Aged in 100% new oak barrels for 18 months.
