Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A spectacular jewel from the Garcin family, this small vineyard near Haut-Bergey consists of 15 acres planted with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of blackberries, cassis, graphite and charcoal embers that cut a broad, medium to full-bodied swath across the palate. It is another 2011 that proves the surprisingly high quality of the wines from Pessac-Leognan and Graves in this vintage as well as the qualitative commitments of the Garcin family. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Wine Spectator
Dense and broad-shouldered, this carries a toasted frame, offering fig, currant and espresso notes at the core for balance. Youthfully raw and backward today, with a loamy edge that holds sway through the finish. A powerful rendering in this vintage, cutting an imposing figure. Best from 2017 through 2030. 500 cases made.

Chateau Branon, France
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.

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.

In former years the wine had indisputable fame as the old ruins of the Chateau and the chai testify. One of the Gironde’s oldest stone wine presses can be found here. An ancient book - "Les richesses gastronomiques de la France, les vins des Bordeaux", written by Charles Lorbac, says that the merchants Schröder and Schyler bought the 1865 vintage at a price of 1800 F (Germinal) per "tonneau". The official documents of the classification of 1855 indicate that BRANON, at that price, was classified as a 4eme cru.

Recently Chateau Branon has made an incredible comeback and now produces 5000 bottles of wine composed of 50% Merlot and 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon.
