Brane-Cantenac, Margaux 2009


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

At the heart of the distinguished Margaux appellation, Château Brane-Cantenac stands proudly. Renowned for producing wines of remarkable elegance and finesse, this 75-hectare estate is an emblem of quality and excellence in the world of fine wine. Vineyards are stamped with the will of men. Begun 250 years ago, Brane-Cantenac’s legend is the tale of a thriving relationship between man and earth, which grows stronger as the ages go by. Named ‘Hostein’ in the 18th Century, this great wine estate was bought by the Gorce family, and produced one of the Medoc’s most renowned wines long before the 1855 classification.

Since Henri Lurton took over in 1992, he has made it his mission to produce the best possible wine, reinforcing Brane’s position as a second classified growth in 1855. The result is a fine wine that perfectly expresses its remarkable terroir.

Tasted blind. Blackish crimson. Some black cherries on the nose. Good edge and freshness. Very lively but still unformed. A hint of salinity. Just a bit scrawny on the end.

Stephen Brook

Henri Lurton runs this large property with meticulous care - by 2010 some parcels were being farmed organically and he was introducing a dash of Carmenère into the blend, although in this 2009 we see a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. This splendid, deeply coloured Margaux is typical of the vintage, with rich, opulent blackberry aromas and a velvety texture. Its full-bodied and sumptuous, but only moderate acidity means that it lacks a little punch on the finish. Its accessible now, and should drink beautifully for some years to come.
