Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its dark garnet color offers a nose that opens on roasted red fruits with a finely wooded point, of licorice and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is balanced, honest, fleshy, full, vinous and distinctive with a finish on tight tannins that are slipping.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Vineyards that have a higher planting density produce grapes that are highly concentrated in sugar and aromas.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Brane-Cantenac

    The Baron de Brane, second wine of the Château Brane-Cantenac, benefits from the savoir-faire and terroir of the domain. Established in the 18th century, the property was repurchased in 1833 by the “Napoleon of vines,” the renown Baron de Brane.

     

    • Terroir: The 75 hectares domain lays on a graves and clay soil with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and carménère as main grape varieties. The clay gives the vines a continuous access to water supplies.

     

    • Viticulture: Vines are 25 years old in average with a high planting density that oscillates between 6700 and 8000 plants per hectare.

     

    • Vinification: The wine ages in french oak barrel. The second wine benefits from the same winemaking methods with a shorter ageing period of 12 months. The second wine’s blend is more flexible than the grand vin and ages faster.
