It opens with aromas of forest floor, oak spice, damson plum and black currant. Medium-bodied with structured tannins and a breath of fresh acidity, this wine is drinking well now and will age effortlessly for another ten years. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and the remainder Cab Franc.

Established in the 18th century, at which time it was known as "Gorce", this large estate is located on the best gravelly outcrops of Cantenac. A century before the 1855 classification, it was considered one of the best second growths in the Médoc. In 1833, Baron de Brane (called "Napoleon of the Vines") sold his estate in Pauillac, Brane-Mouton, and bought Gorce, which he renamed "Brane-Cantenac", ten years later. Lucien Lurton's grandfather acquired the estate in 1925, and was succeeded by his grandson in 1956. Lucien Lurton's son, Henri, currently manages the estate and puts all his efforts into producing a great Margaux in each and every vintage, reflecting Brane-Cantenac's superb vineyard soil.
