RATINGS

90Vinous / IWC

...precocious red cherry, crushed strawberry and cedar aromas, all very cohesive and displaying good vigor. The fresh, tensile palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, offering dark cherries, bay leaf and cedar toward the persistent finish.

90-91James Suckling

...red currant and berry character. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a straightforward finish.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Very juicy and vibrant with lots of sweet fruit. Vivacity defined.

PRODUCER

Château Brane-Cantenac (Second Label)

Château Le Baron de Brane is the second wine of Château Brane-Cantenac, which is a 185-acre estate in Margaux. It is a Second Growth estate according to the 1855 classification. It has been owned since the early 20th century by the Lurton family. The estate was in the 19th century considered one of the best in the region, then in the early to mid-20th centuries many wine writers noted a decline in quality. But Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that since the late 1990s, “this once perennial underperformer is enjoying a renaissance…” In 2003, Parker wrote that “Brane-Cantenac is one of the rising stars of Margaux.” Vineyards are planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Some 140,000 bottles are produced annually.
