Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its dark garnet color offers a slightly woody nose of red fruits, cassis and menthol. As for the taste, this wine is well signed with a nice balance. It is frank, open, full and with a nervous finish with coated 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.

In 1838, Maxime Jacques de Brane, son of the Baron de Brane, changed the domain name to that of his village.
