The roots of Brane Cantenac can be traced back to the early 18th century. At the time it was owned by the Gorce family and was known as Château Gorce (and for a while as Château Gorce Guy). Today, the Château consists of 90 hectares of vineyards in the Margaux appellation. The largest vineyard covers 45 hectares and is located next to the Château on the plateau de Brane. The 2nd vineyard (22 hectares) is located further north near Soussans. The other vineyards are further south near Arsac. The terroir consists mainly of gravel, but to a lesser extent also of sand and clay. This Margaux consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Baron de Brane is the second wine of Château Brane Cantenac and this Margaux de Brane is the 3rd wine of Château Brane Cantenac.

Henri Lurton selects the youngest parcels of the vineyard for Margaux de Brane. This Baron de Margaux is a silky, fruit-driven wine with impressive roundness and aromas of red fruit, the wine is much more accessible and if the big brother often has to age for years, it is already delicious in its younger years. It offers an introduction to the wonders of the Margaux appellation and, in particular, to Brane's distinctive style. The 2020 vintage is a blend of 64% Merlot
and 36% Cabernet Sauvignon.
