    Brane-Cantenac

    About Brane-Cantenac

    An estate with a remarkably storied history, it may well hold the record for most name changes of any property in Bordeaux!  Brane-Cantenac, as we know it, is a 2éme Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 Classification. It came to be in the early 17th century when it was known as Domaine Guilhem Hosten. The wine was produced here early in the estate’s life those many centuries ago, with the vineyards first developed by the Gorce family, owners in the late 1700’s, who named it Château Gorce-Guy.  

     

    Their wine was so highly regarded that it was one of the most expensive wines in all of Bordeaux, selling for almost as much money as Brane-Mouton (later of course purchased by the Rothschild family), the first property of the Baron of Brane who would sell Mouton in 1833 to fund his purchase of Cantenac.  

     

    Finally, on the cusp of receiving its modern title, the Baron combined his own with the name of the nearby village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation, just to the West of which the estate’s vineyards are still to be found. 

     

    The Winemaking and the wine

    Today it is run by the extremely capable Henri Lurton. Henri has overseen a huge programme of vineyard replanting, density increasing and drainage improvements. The total vineyard is 75ha with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39.5% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 5% Carménère (used for the first time in the 2011 vintage). The 45ha used to produce the Grand Vin are mainly surrounding the château.

     

    Henri’s arrival precipitated extensive investment in the winery, as well as vastly improved vineyard management techniques. Consequently, the wines are consistently showing weight and concentration, alongside that haunting bouquet and quintessential elegance that characterise the wines of Margaux.

    Wine Advocate (90)

    Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Brane-Cantenac has a quintessential bouquet for the estate with black fruit laced with cedar, scorched earth and a touch of leather, nicely defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite solid in the mouth with impressive persistence. Classic in style, yet conveying focus and pleasing linearity, this is a fine Margaux for an off-vintage. Tasted February 2017.

    Jeb Dunnuck (95)

    Showing beautifully, the 2009 Château Brane-Cantenac is loaded with classic Margaux notes of sandalwood, dried flowers, spice, truffle, and blackcurrants. Based on 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc brought up in 70% new French oak, it's medium to full-bodied and has a beautifully textured, elegant mouthfeel, terrific mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's a quintessential, elegant yet textured, concentrated Margaux to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.

    Antonio Galloni - Vinous (92-95)

    A super-expressive, deep wine, the 2015 Brane-Cantenac possesses magnificent intensity and pure power from start to finish. Dark red cherry, wild flowers, smoke, plum, tobacco, spice and game are some of the notes that build as the wine gains richness and volume with time in the glass. There is plenty of tannin lurking beneath, but it is nearly buried by the sheer opulence of the fruit, while the creamy finish alone is striking. This a deeply satisfying wine from Henri Lurton. Brane-Cantenac is another wine that is a pure pleasure bomb in 2015. Don't miss it. Tasted three times.

    Brane-Cantenac 2016 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (96-98)

    The 2016 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Carmenere picked from 22 September until 17 October (the tiny parcel of Carmenere picked three days later). The yields came in at 51 hectoliters per hectare and it is matured in 75% new oak and 25% one-year-old barrels, the final alcohol level 13.3%. It has a beautifully defined, very detailed bouquet with mineral-rich black fruit laced with cedar and graphite notes, living up to its nom de plume as the Pauillac of Margaux. The palate is simply the best that I have ever tasted at the estate, without question. This has presence, but also weightlessness, filigree tannin and perfectly pitched acidity, with real intensity and drive. The tension here is outstanding and the persistence is incredibly long. It is not the showiest of all the 2016s by a long stretch, and yet it is everything you could possibly want from a Margaux. Like Beychevelle this year, the 2016 Brane-Cantenac puts recent vintages in the shade, thanks not only to the growing season, but also a new punching down system in their gravity-fed winery that was completed in 2015. The 2016 is a benchmark against which future vintages will be compared.

    Wine Advocate (97)

    Derived exclusively from the château's holdings on the deep gravel soils of the plateau of Brane, the 2019 Brane-Cantenac has turned out brilliantly and merits a special effort to seek out. Wafting from the glass with aromas of wild berries, pencil shavings, violets, sweet loamy soil and cardamon, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with lively acids, ripe tannins and a beautifully seamless, perfumed profile. Retaining all the estate's signature elegance but with an extra dimension of depth and intensity, it's the finest Brane-Cantenac of the modern era and one of the great successes of the 2019 vintage.
