A renowned 18 Century property, Château Branon is situated in the heart of Léognan on a gravel slope, orientated toward the South-South West. It gives rise to a uniquely elegant and complex red wine.
The remains of the castle and the wineries contain one of the oldest stone wine presses of the Gironde region which confirms its remarkable past. Another indication suggesting the quality of the « cru », is the wine trading company Scroder and Schyler who used to sell the wine in 1865 at the price of a Fourth Cru Classé – « Quatrième Cru Classé » in 1855.


It is above all, the diversity of the soils, from complex gravel to clay and gravel sub soils, that testify to the presence of streams from the Garonne running down from the Pyrénées, that creates its unique character.

For 15 years now, the Garcin family have been concentrating their efforts on creating a precise and rare wine, in line with the quality of its « terroir ». Driven by the same team as Château Haut-Bergey, Château Branon benefits from the same organic and biodynamic certifications.

Château Branon Wine

Originated from the old parcels of wine producing grapes, Château Branon follows the pure tradition of great wines, worthy of their « terroir ». The « cru » embodies the purest expression of very old vines, possessing a naturally exceptional concentration. It benefits from the aging and maceration barrels and it is then matured further in 100% new barrels.
