Château Brane Cantenac

The vineyards of this château are located to the west of the village of Cantenac. Proprietor Henri Lurton has improved the quality in the vines, regrafting previously planted Merlot to high quality Cabernet Sauvignon.

A higher than usual percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon has elevated and 'grown' this Margaux into a really powerful wine in 2023. Dense and dark in the glass, there is a brooding limpidity and sheen to the colour. The nose is immediate and intense thick with black fruits. The palate is equally so, powerful, rich and concentrated, layered with crunchy black fruits, cassis, kirsch and spice, with a fine note of plum. There is a delicious freshness that perfectly balances the fruit and holds the powerful tannins around the sweet core. Muscular, dense and brooding.
Delicious with rare roast beef with seasonal vegetables and yorkshire pudding.
Harvest dates: 4th September - 2nd October. Yield of 45.7 hl/ha. Aged in 100% new oak barrels for 18 months.
