Château Brane-Cantenac was for many years the home of Lucien Lurton; it is now owned and run by his son Henri. Its vineyards are located west of the village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation.

Brane-Cantenac's vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (4.5%) and Carmenère (0.5%), and lie on fine, gravelly soils. Vinification includes up to 18 months' wood ageing, a third to a half in new barriques.

Brane-Cantenac was perceived throughout much of the 70s and 80s as an underperforming property. Since Henri took over, there has been extensive investment in the cuverieand chai, as well as vastly improved vineyard management techniques. Consequently, the wines at Brane-Cantenac now show more weight and concentration, although they still possess that haunting bouquet and quintessential elegance that characterise the wines of Margaux. It is classified as a 2ème Cru Classé.

Château Tasting   An explosion of red fruit at perfect maturity. A garnet red colour with real intensity and depth. A refined, expressive nose, offering strawberry, cherry and blackberry aromas. The attack is round, almost sweet, with supple, fine tannins. Superb length in the mouth and great purity with retro-olfaction.
