Château Brane-Cantenac

Château Brane-Cantenac

Château Brane-Cantenac has been home to Lucien Lurton for many years and is currently run by his son Henri. The vineyards are west of the village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (4.5%) and Carmenère 0.5%, on gravelly soil. Vinification includes up to 18 months of aging in 30 to 50% new oak. Brane-Cantenac was considered a winery in the 1970s and 1980s. With the advent of Henri Lurton began a serious improvement in agricultural practices and investment in the winery. As a result, their wines now have more density and richness, while retaining the impressive bouquet and elegance that characterize Margaux. Château Brane-Cantenac is classified as 2ème Cru Classé.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.
