Brane-Cantenac

About Brane-Cantenac

An estate with a remarkably storied history, it may well hold the record for most name changes of any property in Bordeaux!  Brane-Cantenac, as we know it, is a 2éme Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 Classification. It came to be in the early 17th century when it was known as Domaine Guilhem Hosten. The wine was produced here early in the estate’s life those many centuries ago, with the vineyards first developed by the Gorce family, owners in the late 1700’s, who named it Château Gorce-Guy.  

 

Their wine was so highly regarded that it was one of the most expensive wines in all of Bordeaux, selling for almost as much money as Brane-Mouton (later of course purchased by the Rothschild family), the first property of the Baron of Brane who would sell Mouton in 1833 to fund his purchase of Cantenac.  

 

Finally, on the cusp of receiving its modern title, the Baron combined his own with the name of the nearby village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation, just to the West of which the estate’s vineyards are still to be found. 

 

The Winemaking and the wine

Today it is run by the extremely capable Henri Lurton. Henri has overseen a huge programme of vineyard replanting, density increasing and drainage improvements. The total vineyard is 75ha with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39.5% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 5% Carménère (used for the first time in the 2011 vintage). The 45ha used to produce the Grand Vin are mainly surrounding the château.

 

Henri’s arrival precipitated extensive investment in the winery, as well as vastly improved vineyard management techniques. Consequently, the wines are consistently showing weight and concentration, alongside that haunting bouquet and quintessential elegance that characterise the wines of Margaux.

Wine Advocate (85)

After my first edition of Bordeaux I received several letters from readers claiming that my ungenerous review of the 1970 Brane-Cantenac (I rated it a 65 and called it distressingly poor) was inconsistent with their tastings. I was a participant in a Bordeaux tasting where the wine was served as part of a horizontal tasting of the 1970 vintage. Two of the three bottles were deep ruby in color, with a spicy, herbaceous, earthy scent (rather than the dirty barnyard smell I described), and medium bodied, with a soft, relatively concentrated finish. Another bottle was not nearly as good as the other two, but not nearly as bad as the 1970 Brane-Cantenac I described in the 1985 edition of this book. For whatever reason, there does appear to be a great deal of bottle variation with this vintage; certainly the good examples are wines that merit a score in the mid-eighties, the bad bottles are deplorable. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/89.

Jeb Dunnuck (95)

Showing beautifully, the 2009 Château Brane-Cantenac is loaded with classic Margaux notes of sandalwood, dried flowers, spice, truffle, and blackcurrants. Based on 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc brought up in 70% new French oak, it's medium to full-bodied and has a beautifully textured, elegant mouthfeel, terrific mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's a quintessential, elegant yet textured, concentrated Margaux to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (92-95 )

(a blend of 62% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 8% cabernet franc; 13.5% alcohol) Purple-ruby. Highly c omplex aromas of red plum, cassis, violet, graphite, and cedar. Then focused and suave on the palate, with flavors of pure blackberry, blueberry pie and flint. Finishes with broad, polished tannins and impressive length. This excellent Brane-Cantenac is a highly nuanced and structured wine with plenty of life ahead. If it gains in sweetness, it may well eventually rate a score at the high end of my range. Drink 2020-2040.

Wine Advocate (88)

The 2013 Brane-Cantenac has come on nicely since I last tasted it in barrel, even if it does fall short of recent vintages from Henri Lurton and his team. Certainly it has developed more fruit concentration on the nose: fresh strawberries and redcurrant laced with tobacco. The palate is nicely balanced with fine tannin and well-judged acidity, just a touch of piquancy coming through on the finish. It has developed more heft during barrel ageing and given 3 or 4 years in bottle, should develop into a satisfying mid-term Margaux.

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2014 Brane-Cantenac has a very classy bouquet, very well defined with blackberry, cedar and tobacco scents, that trademark graphite scent emerging with a few swirls of the glass. It is exactly what you expect from this Margaux estate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, graphite and cedar towards the linear finish that will clearly need several years to unfold. Classic Margaux really, but wise owls will cellar it away for several years.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (92-95)

A super-expressive, deep wine, the 2015 Brane-Cantenac possesses magnificent intensity and pure power from start to finish. Dark red cherry, wild flowers, smoke, plum, tobacco, spice and game are some of the notes that build as the wine gains richness and volume with time in the glass. There is plenty of tannin lurking beneath, but it is nearly buried by the sheer opulence of the fruit, while the creamy finish alone is striking. This a deeply satisfying wine from Henri Lurton. Brane-Cantenac is another wine that is a pure pleasure bomb in 2015. Don't miss it. Tasted three times.

Brane-Cantenac 2016 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96-98)

The 2016 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Carmenere picked from 22 September until 17 October (the tiny parcel of Carmenere picked three days later). The yields came in at 51 hectoliters per hectare and it is matured in 75% new oak and 25% one-year-old barrels, the final alcohol level 13.3%. It has a beautifully defined, very detailed bouquet with mineral-rich black fruit laced with cedar and graphite notes, living up to its nom de plume as the Pauillac of Margaux. The palate is simply the best that I have ever tasted at the estate, without question. This has presence, but also weightlessness, filigree tannin and perfectly pitched acidity, with real intensity and drive. The tension here is outstanding and the persistence is incredibly long. It is not the showiest of all the 2016s by a long stretch, and yet it is everything you could possibly want from a Margaux. Like Beychevelle this year, the 2016 Brane-Cantenac puts recent vintages in the shade, thanks not only to the growing season, but also a new punching down system in their gravity-fed winery that was completed in 2015. The 2016 is a benchmark against which future vintages will be compared.

The grand vin 2018 Château Brane-Cantenac checks in as 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that fermented in wooden tanks and saw malolactic fermentation and aging in 70% new French oak. It's a beautifully layered, sexy beauty loaded with notions of blackcurrants, spicy oak, camphor, and dried tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and layered on the palate, it has a seamless texture, sweet tannin, remarkable freshness and purity, and a great finish. Count me in as a fan. This is another irresistible 2018 that should be snatched up by readers. It will keep for 25-30 years.

A thoroughly moreish and high-quality Brane Cantenac, this is silky and seductive with impressive extraction of the tannins giving backbone and support to brambled and cassis fruits. Plenty of crushed stone and spice to add a gourmet edge alongside the just-smoked oak. Extremely high quality and one of the best Branes I've tasted at this stage. 3% of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complete the blend. For the first time, all of the plots for this wine come from the plateau de Brane just in front of the château, a reflection of how well this terroir withstood the heat of the summer.

Brane-Cantenac 2019 (6x75cl)

Decanter (96)

A thoroughly moreish and high-quality Brane Cantenac, this is silky and seductive with impressive extraction of the tannins giving backbone and support to brambled and cassis fruits. Plenty of crushed stone and spice to add a gourmet edge alongside the just-smoked oak. Extremely high quality and one of the best Branes I've tasted at this stage. 3% of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complete the blend.

Brane-Cantenac 2020 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (96-97)

Extremely floral and beautiful with blackberry and blackcurrant aromas that follow through to a full body with a solid core of fruit and loads of dark fruit, sweet tobacco, bark and earth. Chewy, fine tannins. Perhaps the best of the trilogy years.
