At this special tutored tasting, enjoy a chance to experience a selection of wines from super-second growth Margaux property Château Brane-Cantenac.  


Tim Sykes, buyer for Bordeaux will lead members and their guests through a vertical tasting of five vintages of the grand vin, Château Brane-Cantenac, going back to 2006. Tim will also present a vertical tasting of Baron de Brane, one of Bordeaux’s best valued second wines and a consistent member favourite.  


Henri Lurton, owner of Brane-Cantenac, has transformed the quality of wines under his watchful eye, and Tim is delighted to share these wines to highlight the individual character of the property and the vintages in which they were made. 


Alongside the selected wines each guest will receive a personal plate of premium cheeses from the Fine Cheese Company.
