A noble red wine from Margaux

Chateau Cantenac Brown is a Classified 3rd Growth from Margaux. Produced from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (68%) and Merlot (32%), the vintage required 49% of the harvest. Aged in barrels, of which 60% were new and 40% were one year old. 

Chateau Cantenac Brown 2016 offers intrinsic qualities that are rarely observed, although this Margaux has been known to set the mark. The wine is noble and not excessive. The balance is magnificent, and the alcohol is very easily digestible. The wine is dynamic, with creamy tannins that are wrapped in fruit. Surely, a very great Margaux.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Cantenac Brown comes from a Margaux estate that has upped its game in recent years. It has an intense bouquet with floral aromas filtering through the black cherries, cassis and boysenberry notes, in an odd way almost Saint-Emilion in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. Silky smooth with very well-judged acidity, there is a sorbet-like freshness imbued into this Margaux and it just glides across the palate towards the quite sensual finish. This is certainly equal to the impressive 2015 Cantenac Brown.
