Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) CHATEAU BRANON is an old property whose high reputation dates back to the 18th century. It is located in Léognan on the slope of a gravelly hill between Haut-Bailly and Malartic Lagravière. Its vineyards are particularly well exposed towards the south and south-west. The whole estate was in a very poor condition and partly abandoned when Sylvaine Garcin-Cathiard acquired it in 1996. Today it comprises of 6.5 hectares. It is mainly the diversity of its soil that gives the wine its character. The exceptional soil consists of clay and gravel washed up from the Pyrenees caused by the meanderings of the Garonne over time
