"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.
"50% Merlot/50% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Ageing potential: 10-15 years. At its best from 2014 onwards
"November 2014: A deep red coloured wine with a restrained fruit-driven nose. A slightly sweet yet mellow attack. Very rich, satisfying mid-palette. Good persistence with a strong finish." - Winery
