A Margaux of great class and infinite richness, welcome to Château Brane-Cantenac. In 1833, Baron Hector de Brane, then known as the "Napoléon of the vineyards", acquired a Domaine in the commune of Cantenac, where he sublimated the vineyard and gave it his name. Read more
Thus was born Château Brane-Cantenac, which was promoted to Second Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification. It was during the 1920s that Domaine came under the Lurton family banner, and since 1992 it has been Henri Lurton, the fourth generation, who has been working to continue the journey begun by his predecessors.
The vineyard of Domaine rests on deep, mineral-rich gravel soils, conducive to producing great wines. It extends over 75 hectares of vines planted in red, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Carménère.
The Domaine produces a Second wine, Baron de Brane, as well as a third wine, the Margaux de Brane.
Since 2019, a few parcels of Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc have made it possible to produce the white wine of Domaine, Brane-Cantenac blanc.
The Château Brane-Cantenac is renowned for its complex, elegant and racy wines, where the purity of fruit dominates.
