Product Description
Source: Winemaker,
The name of our second wine honours Baron Jacques-Maxime de Brane, who owned the estate in the 19th century. Blended from vats carefully selected for their suppleness, it is aged just like the First Wine, but for a 12-month period.

TASTING NOTES
November 2014: A deep ruby colour with violet tints, showing remarkable intensity. A highly aromatic nose with black fruit aromas (blackberries and cassis) and delicate floral notes. Vanilla and spices are present on the second nose. The attack is full and round, and the mid-palate very generous, with sweet tannins. This is a well-balanced and full-flavoured wine.

FACTS
Harvest dates: 27th September - 16th October
Yield: 45.5 hl/ha
% First Wine produced: 32
Barrel ageing: 12 months in 30% new French oak
Ageing potential: 10-15 years. At its best from 2017 onwards.

VINTAGE SUMMARY
Spring was challenging, with very rainy weather in April as vines began shooting, but excellent summer weather made up for it, with the hottest August since 2003. Getting the harvesting date right was crucial in order to obtain fully ripe grapes, without endangering their health by allowing the rain at the end of September and in October to take its toll.
Brane’s great success in this vintage is down to the terroir, which leads grapes to ripen early. The fact that we included 68% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of Brane-Cantenac bears witness to its beautiful maturity, and to the excellent work that was done in the vineyard.
