Brane-Cantenac has some of the best terroir in the entire Medoc. Their largest parcel is on the famed "Plateau de Brane," where gravel can be up to 12 meters deep. This gravel is the key to the wine's exceptionally fine texture and mineral depth.

While Brane-Cantenac is a prime example of traditional, terroir-expressive Margaux, the grand vin requires about 15-20 years to hit its true drinking window. Baron de Brane is far more approachable in youth. It's still a very serious wine, but sees only 20% new oak, and is sourced from vats selected for their more open and supple personalities.

Quite simply, Baron de Brane is a second wine which puts many other grand vins from Margaux to shame.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"Brane-Cantenac's 2016 Baron de Brane is a silky, gracious second wine from Brane-Cantenac that is ideal for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Expressive floral and savory notes add brightness to a core of sweet red berry and plum fruit. The 2016 is delicate and a touch lithe in the glass, with superb balance and tons of sheer immediacy." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 91
"The 2016 Baron de Brane is a blend of 65% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. It has a very pure and charming bouquet with brambly red fruit, cedar and pencil shavings, very assured for a Deuxième Vin. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin on the entry, the fruit a little darker than the nose suggests, segueing into a well-defined second half with brown spices and hints of leather. This is an intriguing Baron de Brane." -Robert Parker
