Located in the Haut Médoc appellation, the property can be found at the heart of the commune of Cissac-Médoc in the Centre of the Médoc region, between Pauillac and St. Estèphe.
To honour the founder of the domain and reflect the improved quality of the wine, Mr. Cooreman decides to change the name of the brand, which becomes Château Bertrand Braneyre.
Having worked in the wine industry in Belgium for over 50 years, Ludwig Cooreman purchased Château Bertrand Braneyre in 1993 on the advice of some oenologist friends familiar with the Cissac terroir, located near the Grands Seigneurs in Pauillac, such as Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Lafitte Rothschild.
He has surrounded himself with Eric Boissenot, the Left Bank’s most respected consulting oenologist (he advises Lafitte Rothschild, Margaux, Palmer…) and Pierre Sadaune, an ENITA engineer and the former technical manager of Château Phelan Ségur.
His sole aim when he bought the vineyard was to create a Great Wine worthy of his Pauillac neighbours.
