Château Brane-Cantenac is a distinguished estate situated in the Margaux appellation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Covering approximately 75 hectares, this historic vineyard is celebrated for producing wines that embody the elegance and refinement of Margaux. The vineyards are primarily planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, flourishing in the gravelly and sandy soils of the region.

Jane Anson: 96/100

A great aromatic hit on the opening beats, giving way to silky tannins, spiced plum, rhubarb and slate, cassis and bilberry fruit, all showing depth and intensity. Such an accomplished wine, once again showing how it's done. 100% new oak for malolactic and ageing, 8 coopers, 28 different toasts. 45.7hl/h yields, which is generous for this vintage in the Margaux appellation. Harvest September 14 to October 2. 3.59ph.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Independent: 94-96/100
The 2023 Brane-Cantenac is deep garnet-purple in color. Scents of blackcurrant jelly, boysenberries, and black raspberries slowly emerge from the glass, giving way to notions of charcoal, pencil lead, and a waft of tree bark. The medium-bodied palate has a solid structure of racy acidity and firm, ripe, grainy tannins supporting the tightly wound black and red fruit flavors, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
