    A Balanced, Concentrated and Great Margaux

    At Chateau Cantenac Brown, a prestigious reference of the Margaux appellation, 2018 will be remembered as an unparalleled and exceptional vintage.

    After a complicated start, due to a rainy weather, the summer sun finally appeared. At Chateau Cantenac-Brown, the beautiful late-season brought warm days and cool nights, helping the fruit achieve perfect phenolic maturity and a nice aromatic concentration. The small berries with thick skin were full of anthocyanins, ideal for the production of deep-colored wines with tannins that show great freshness, roundness and length on the palate.

    2018 also rewarded the hard work and know-how of the technical teams at Chateau Cantenac-Brown, an estate located on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Throughout the year, the teams paid constant attention to the vineyard, making a great effort to bring it to its best.

    With its blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (69%), complemented by Merlot (28%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), the Chateau Cantenac Brown 2018 shows off the characteristics typical of a great Margaux, achieved through the perfect maturity of each grape variety. With its great roundness, balance and concentration, Chateau Cantenac Brown 2018 is a sure value in this vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Cantenac Brown is deep garnet-purple in color and a little coy to begin and then, with coaxing, opens out to lovely red roses, black tea, violets and underbrush scents with a core of warm red and black currants and chocolate-covered cherries. Full-bodied and laden with perfumed red and black fruit layers, it has a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and a long, fragrant finish.
