The long history of Chateau-Braner Ducret coincides with the times of rivalry between the bourgeoisie and the aristocracy for the right to own land in the Medoc. Since 1988, Patrick Marotё and Philippe Dain, President and Managing Braner-Ducret, respectively, renewed this rivalry, and all the journalists who write about wine, tirelessly watching developments.
A lot of old wines and vineyards are in excellent condition, only strengthen the position of the owners. The soil is gravel. For young vines tended with great care. Instead of controlling weeds, which seems cruel masters, here give the grass grow freely between the rows of vines. This method helps to naturally limit the harvest, so ripe berries are the most full-bodied taste, and also helps to protect the grapes from drought, since the roots of plants grow deep to find water.
