A Margaux of great class and infinite wealth, welcome to Château Brane-Cantenac. In 1833, Baron Hector de Brane, who was then known as the "Napoléon of the vineyards" acquired a Domaine in the commune of Cantenac, whose vineyards he sublimated and to which he gave his name. Thus was born the Château Brane-Cantenac, which will be promoted to the rank of Sec or Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification. It was during the 1920s that Domaine came under the banner of the Lurton family, and since 1992 it has been Henri Lurton, the fourth generation, who has been working to continue the journey begun by his predecessors.

The vineyard of Domaine rests on deep, mineral-rich gravel soils, conducive to producing great wines. It covers 75 hectares of vines planted in red, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Carménère.

The Domaine produces a Second wine, Baron de Brane, as well as a third wine, Margaux de Brane.

Since 2019, a few parcels of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc have made it possible to produce the white wine of Domaine, Brane-Cantenac blanc.

The Château Brane-Cantenac is renowned for its complex, elegant and racy wines, where the purity of the fruit dominates.
