4 /5

Le Château de Brane-Cantenac est la propriété de Henri Lurton depuis 1992. Il succède à son père afin de mettre ses compétences au service du vignoble.

Cette propriété de 80 hectares est répartie sur plusieurs parcelles. Les vignes ont une moyenne de 35 ans. Le Baron de Brane bénéficie des progrès de l'exploitation tels que le nouveau cuvier ou la nouvelle technique de transport des vendanges afin d'éviter l'écrasement des grappes.

Les raisins sont triés manuellement. L'élevage du Baron de Brane dure douze mois dans des fûts de chêne. Le mélange est de 55 % cabernet sauvignon, 40 % merlot, 4,5 % cabernet franc et 0,5 % carmenère.

Le Baron de Brane bénéficie de la même équipe que le premier vin du Château. Elle est constituée de Charles de Ravinel comme chef de culture et Jacques Boissenot comme conseil œnologue.

Le Figaro donne au Baron de Brane 2008 une note de 15,5/20

Le conseil de Fred le sommelier : Ce second du célèbre Château Brane Cantenac à une robe rubis. Il a un nez complexe avec une dominante fumée soutenue par des notes de violettes et de caramel. Il est dense et long en bouche avec des tannins fondus. Sa finale est ronde sur des notes fruitées et nuancées par des touches torréfiées. Dégustez le Baron de Brane dès à présent avec un plateau de fromages, des viandes rouges, un chapon fin!

4 /5

The roots of Brane Cantenac can be traced back to the beginning of the 18 century. At the time it was owned by the Gorce family and was known as Château Gorce (and for a while as Château Gorce Guy). Today the Château consists of 90 hectares of vineyards in the Margaux appellation. The largest vineyard covers 45 hectares and is located next to the Château on the Brane plateau. The 2nd vineyard (22 hectares) is located further north near Soussans. The other vineyards are located further south near Arsac. The terroir consists mainly of gravel but to a lesser extent also of sand and clay. This Margaux consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Baron de Brane is the second wine from Château Brane Cantenac.

The Baron de Brane has a deep red color with purple hues. In the nose intense and predominantly red fruit dominated aromas. There is also a hint of mint and flowers and licorice. The taste is intense yet smooth and has a fresh and long finish. This wine is well balanced and good for the elderly. Nice full and soft taste, lots of suppleness, but the cabernet also gives it backbone, fresh acids and some tannins
