This estate was originally called Brane-Mouton, but in 1833 the Baron of Brane, known as the “Napoleon of the vineyards,” sold off part of the property to the Rothschilds; the part he kept he renamed “Brane-Cantenac.” Today it is one of many Bordeaux properties in the control of the Lurton family, being managed by Henri Lurton. The estate vineyard is planted to a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Carmenere, which was introduced only in 2011. Brane-Cantenac has been described as “the Pauillac of Margaux,” and this 2016 vintage, widely considered to be the best ever produced at this estate, will show you why. It has a beautifully defined, very detailed bouquet with mineral-rich black fruit laced with cedar and graphite notes. It has great presence on the palate, with elegant tannins, perfectly pitched acidity, and a long and persistent finish.
