Winemakers Note

Brane Cantenac, an emblem of excellence Established in the 18th century under the name Gorce, this estate, nestled on the finest gravelly hillside in Cantenac, was already renowned as one of the Médoc's premier Second Growth vineyards well before the 1855 classification. In 1925, it was acquired by Léonce Récapet, the owner of Château Margaux. Subsequently, Lucien Lurton, his grandson, assumed ownership in 1956, followed by Henri Lurton, the fourth generation custodian. Spanning an expansive 75 hectares of vines, the vineyard is among the largest in Margaux. Its foundation lies in deep, mineral-rich gravel soils, which naturally facilitate impeccable drainage. The "Plateau de Brane," comprising 30 hectares, undoubtedly ranks as one of Margaux AOC's most exceptional terroirs, alongside the gravelly hillsides of Margaux and Palmer. This estate is distinguished by its remarkable elegance, finesse, and the production of silky wines—a true symbol of quality and excellence within the realm of prestigious wines. A must-have in Margaux.
