Henri Lurton Baron De Brane Margaux AOC 2014
The name of the wine is a tribute to the Baron Jacques-
Maxime de Brane, owner of the estate in the 19th Century.
Henri Lurton has owned the prestigious Château Brane-
Cantenac for 20 years now, and strives to strengthen
the position of this 2nd Cru Classé in 1855. The results
are both first and second fine wines, offering a perfect
expression of their outstanding terroir.
Baron de Brane is aged the same way of Brane
Cantenac, but for a period of 12 months. It is blended
from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, except 2011
which is a perfect parity of Cabernet Sauvignon and
Superb nose very expressive and bursting with fruits. Intense wild
strawberries and licorice nose, with a touch of menthol and caramel. Beautiful
finesse and aromatic richness. Straightforward in mouth, with firm yet elegant
tannins. Long and dense backbone with a very nice volume and a lot of freshness.
Concentrated aromatic aftertaste with floral and chocolaty notes. Long and
powerful finish, remarkable tannic structure. A sexy and powerful wine!
