Margaux de Brane Margaux

Product Code: BZ4018RC

Tasting Notes

Displays plum jam and currant bush on the nose. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe fruit, soft, round tannins and a long finish. Slightly loose knit at the moment, but will come together with bottle age. Builds on your palate. Needs time. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Wine Spectator. "Purple dress. The nose is spicy and slightly smoky, with notes of tobacco evolving with airing into aromas of red fruits. The attack is silky, and the mid-palate is fleshy. The wine has a good balance and a tasty and aromatic finish. To keep for 3 to 5 years. Aerate before serving."

The Chateau


Created in the 18th Century by the De Gorce family who gives it her name, this great vineyard produced yet, a century before the classification of 1855, one of the most renowned wines of MÌ©doc. The Baron de Brane, called ‰ÛÏthe Napoleon of wines‰Û, purchased the vineyard in 1833 and devoted all his energy to this growth. He renamed the property ‰ÛÏBrane Cantenac‰Û in 1838. In 1925, Fran̤ois Lurton, main shareholder of ChÌ¢teau Margaux, bought this prestigious growth. His son Lucien, then, his grand-son Henri took over him at the head of the property.
