Château Cantenac Brown

This château has historically been overlooked as a source of top claret. That all changed back in 1989 when it was acquired by AXA Millésimes, also owners of Pichon Baron and Lynch Bages. Since then it has been on a constant upward trajectory and is now producing excellent wine with great consistency.
Moody and alluring deep garnet colour. Bouquet of red fruit, namely cherry and strawberry with a hint of red and blackcurrant. On the palate velvety dark chocolate and vanilla balance the fresh fruit. Tannins are impeccably integrated for a full bodied, complex and opulent Margaux.
Drink with a seared beef tenderloin or a umami rich mushroom risotto.
Aged in French oak barrels, 25% new and 75% one year old. The vines are 35 years old on average. Château Cantenac Brown use a double guyot method to prune. Vine density ranges from 8,500 to 10,000 stocks per hectare and yields 4,500 litres per hectare.
