Château Brane-Cantenac 2ème Cru Classé, Margaux

Château Brane-Cantenac 2ème Cru Classé, Margaux

The vineyards of Château Brane-Cantenac are located west of the village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation. Planted with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and a pinch of Carmenère; the vines do well on the well-drained, fine, gravelly soils. Whilst the château was perceived to be underperforming in the 1980s, in recent years, the investment in both technique and equipment has reaped its rewards. The Grand Vin shows weight alongside elegance and concentration; even with 18 months of oak ageing, with up to a half of the barrels new, the wine possess that haunting perfumed bouquet that characterises the wines of Margaux.
