2000 Château Brane Cantenac, Margaux

2000 Château Brane Cantenac, Margaux

Ref: 0003BORD
Red  |  Still  |  12.8% ABV

Wine has been grown on this spot since at least the early 1600s. Over time the name of the property has changed to reflect the name of its owners. In 1833 the estate - then known as Gorce-Guy after its owners the Gorce family - was bought by the Baron de Brane, who sold Brane-Mouton (later Mouton Rothschild) to raise funds for the purchase. The name was changed to Brane-Cantenac a short time later. After changing hands twice more (and spending time in the same stable as, variously, Châteaux Margaux, Giscours, Issan and Lagrange), the estate was taken over, in 1925, by a M Recapet, along with his son-in-law Francois Lurton. This 75 hectare property is still owned by the Lurton family today.

Tasting Notes

"It has a lovely bouquet not dissimilar to previous bottles, notes of gravel and black truffle unfolding in the glass to accompany the satisfying black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Perhaps it is a little more conservative compared to recent vintages, although it is nicely proportioned, replete with cedar and tobacco toward the satisfying finish. Maybe it has dispensed with a little vigor in recent months? This is still a very fine millennial Brane-Cantenac." Neal Martin

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
