Chateau Brane-Cantenac 2018

Second-Growth Margaux, Château Brane-Cantenac, is one to watch. While it has a history dating back almost 300 years, it is owner and winemaker Henri Lurton’s focus on modern techniques that is putting Brane-Cantenac in the spotlight. Drawing on his qualifications in Biology, Oenology and even Ampelography (the botany of grape vines) Lurton has instilled a commitment towards an organic and sustainable approach to winemaking.

Grape Varieties: 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Wine Region: Margaux, Bordeaux, France

Tasting Note: Leaping from the glass with vibrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries and warm cassis, plus suggestions of roses, forest floor and cinnamon stick with a waft of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully elegant and refreshing. It has lovely soft tannins and a long, perfumed finish.

Food Pairing: Grilled, braised or roasted meat.
