The refinement and freshness of a dense yet delicate Margaux Classified Growth

The estate
Château Cantenac-Brown was built at the beginning of the 19th century by John-Lewis Brown in the town of Cantenac. The property sports an English Renaissance Tudor style in memory of its Scottish origins. Year after year, this magnificent Classified Growth of Margaux has enjoyed a glorious international reputation for the quality of its terroir and its wines. It was at the end of 2019 that Château Cantenac-Brown entered a new era in its history following its acquisition by the Le Lous family. After significant investments and restructuring both in the vineyard and in the winery, this Margaux Classified Growth has been elevated to the pinnacle of excellence, known by wine lovers around the world for its fantastic value for money.

The vineyard
The Cantenac Brown vineyard stretches over 48 hectares in the AOC Margaux, 3.5 in Bordeaux and 1.8 hectares in Bordeaux dry white. Under the direction of José Sanfins, the management of the vineyard is carried out with a profound respect for the environment. The soils are maintained in a traditional way in order to promote microbial life and chemical balance. The fertilisers used are exclusively of plant origin. Thanks to the estate’s highly meticulous technical teams, each vine stock is given plenty of attention.

The vintage
The 2019 harvest at Château Cantenac Brown took place from September 18 with the Merlot to October 9 with the Cabernet. Despite some cloudy periods, the harvest was carried out under good conditions, promising another very fine vintage ending in -9 to celebrate the arrival of the Le Lous family to Margaux.

The ageing
Ageing in French oak barrels, 60% of which are new oak and 40% oak of one previous wine.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (68%), merlot (32%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Château Cantenac Brown 2019 promises to be a very great vintage for the estate. The first tastings revealed a Margaux wine of exceptional class. Product of a very fine vintage ending in -9, this Grand Cru Classé is distinguished by the freshness of its fruit, the density of substance and its tannins of great finesse.
