2006 Ch. Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

Ch. Brane-Cantenac, Margaux
The dedication at the Chateau to fulfill its second growth status continues to be very evident in this fine 2006. Attractive, soft, savoury aromas on the nose transpose into a rich, elegant and beautifully defined palate of abundant yet delicate dark fruits. Fine tannins combine with refreshing acidity to provide a wonderful long finish and another great effort from this underrated Chateau.
(Jake Dean, BBR Fine Wine Sales Manager - Oct 08)Château Brane-Cantenac


Owner Henri Lurton has made quite a reputation for himself (no mean feat when there are so many other winemaking Lurtons in Bordeaux) by dragging this Second Growth back to close to its best. This is a highly attractive, feminine wine,with a smooth, spicy, vanilla nose, silky raspberry and blackcurrant fruit and a pure, intense finish. Henri's selection for this wine was ruthless, with less than 40% making it into the Grand Vin. Made in an early-drinking style, the extra good news is that Henri's wines alwaysfill out and improve in their second year thus making this a very smart buy indeed.
