Château Cantenac-Brown, classified Third Growth in 1855, spreads its 42 hectares of vines between Margaux and Cantenac, on the gravelly hilltops that have made the reputation of the wines of the Margaux appellation.
The choice of the grapes used to make this second wine is the result of meticulous observation of the plots from bud-break to harvest. Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 65% of the cuvée, with the rest divided between Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
After manual harvesting, the vinification takes place in temperature-controlled vats and the wine is aged in new oak barrels for 12 months, from the fifth to the fifth.
Tasting Notes: The result is a wine that carries the finesse and elegance of the Margaux, with very ripe red and black fruits, depth and a sparkling finish.
