The ancient origins of this property date back in the 17th century. In 1838, Jacques-Maxime de Brane, changed the estate's name by adding his name alongside this of the village. In 1925, Léonce Récapet, distiller from the Entre-deux-Mers region and father-in-law of François Lurton, took over Brane-Cantenac as well as 40% of Château Margaux.
After the death of Léonce, François was forced to accept the sale of his shares of Château Margaux. However, he kept Brane-Cantenac, which he left to his son, Lucien, in 1954. Lucien, a qualified agricultural engineer, settled at Brane with his wife Marie-Jeanne. He put Brane back on the top rung. Henri, his son, took over the estate in 1992, putting into practice his worldwide viticultural experience.
