(3-1990) A pretty good, at least very drinkable '78. Fairly swet, soft, chewy and ripe (there often seems to be a ripeness, even overripeness, fermier, particularly on the nose of Brane). Tannic finish but lots of character.

(11-2013) A gorgeous, mature Brane-Cantenac. Their wines from the 1970s and 1980s show how beautifully this wine evolves and in its youth, it is often under-estimated. A profusion of dried flowers on the nose with silky tannins and layered dried fruits and black truffles on the palate. Elegant, poised and perfectly mature.

Henri Lurton is the soul of this estate which already had a good reputation in the eighteenth century. It is true that the terroir is superb. He adds his style, harveting at the height of ripemess, strictly sorting the grapes, stamping the mark of the terroir on the wines, with a richer raw material, a new aromatic complexity and elegance that allow the wines to age longer than in the past. A great Margaux at affordable prices.
