    A Promising Vintage from Cantenac Brown

    The 3rd Grand Cru Classé Chateau Cantenac Brown is a guaranteed choice of quality in the Margaux appellation, and it one of the most beautiful Medoc estates in the Bordeaux region.

    Located on the Cantenac plateau, Chateau Cantenanc Brown benefits from an exceptional terroir, renowned for producing the greatest wines in the world. The gravel soils play a major role in cultivating the vines during the growing season. The gravel reflects the light on the grape bunches during the day, and then keeps the soil warm for the vines during the nights.

    Vintage after vintage, the wines are consistently of high quality and remain true to the expression of the terroir, and this shows the ambition of the estate’s owners to continue to produce top-class wines from Chateau Cantenac Brown.

    The appellation’s flagship grape, Cabernet Sauvignon, dominates the Chateau Cantenac Brown 2017 to give a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot.

    Highly anticipated, the 2017 vintage Chateau Cantenac Brown demonstrates all the care and attention of the technical team, from the vine to the winery, to make this delicate vintage an exceptional one. Although the Margaux area was hit by frost at the end April 2017, the majority of the vineyard escaped harm. The warm temperatures in the following months helped revive the vegetative cycle, but the summer was slightly cooler than usual. The harvest began in mid-September and ended in early October with Cabernet Sauvignon harvested over this entire period to ensure that thee grapes were picked at their optimal ripeness.

    Despite all the challenges this year, the 2017 Chateau Cantenac Brown has great potential. The tasting showed the beautiful pigments due to the high level of anthocyanin. The Merlot expresses itself beautifully with its suppleness and roundness. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates giving a complexity of aromas. A grandiose and promising vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    With a larger proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon this year, the blend is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cantenac Brown leaps from the glass with exuberant notes of cassis, warm plums and black forest cake with touches of violets, dark chocolate, cloves and cigar box plus a waft of lavender. The palate is medium-bodied and firm with fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with plenty of black fruit and perfumed layers.
