Château Brane-Cantenac

“Obtaining the finest possible fruit requires a unique exchange between man and nature, based on a deep understanding of the land itself, developed through centuries of experience.”

Henri Lurton

One of the Médoc’s most legendary wines, Château Brane-Cantenac is a second growth located in Margaux. Its seventy-five acres of vines count among the appellation’s most exceptional plots. For nearly thirty years, its owner, Henri Lurton, who was raised on the estate and lives there to this day, has gone to great lengths to tend to the estate’s inimitable terroir. A born winegrower, he is only too aware of the importance of caring for his vineyard, which has been in his family for four generations, with a long-term vision to preserve it for future generations. Henri Lurton is a trained oenologist with an advanced degree in the study of soils, and his passion for Brane’s terroir and precise hand are essential in bringing the estate’s terroir to its fullest form of expression. The wines of Brane-Cantenac share a common elegance and excellent balance. The estate’s portfolio of wines—Château Brane-Cantenac, Baron de Brane and Margaux de Brane—was expanded in 2020 with the launch of Brane-Cantenac Blanc, the first vintage of which was harvested in 2019.
