The balance and finesse of a Margaux Grand Cru Classe
Chateau 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 Chateau 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.
Chateau Cantenac Brown 2021 is a Margaux wine made from a 60-hectare vineyard that spreads over the Margaux and Cantenac plateaux. Under the direction of Jose 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 year 2021 is marked by particularly cold spells in April, high humidity at the beginning of the summer and then milder conditions in August and September.
