Chateau Cantenac Brown Margaux 2016

Chateau Cantenac Brown’s estate covers more than 30 hectares in the south of the Margaux appellation, mainly in the Cantenac commune. 17 hectares are planted on top of well-drained, sandy siliceous gravels with very little clay but with extremely deeply rooted vines that produce drop dead gorgeous, concentrated Cabernet dominant wines.

The Cantenac Brown soil is typical Medoc gravel. This beautiful, brilliant quartz, formerly called “Medoc diamonds” reflects the sun’s rays onto the grapes by day and then releases the heat stored during the day to warm the grapes by night. Cabernets, in particular Cabernet Sauvignons, do really well in this soil. They produce fine wines, with an intense bouquet, which are suitable for aging.

Every year, this winery is treated to a myriad of high scores, but understandably in a 98-point Left Bank vintage that was dubbed “nearly perfect” and “the second highest rated to only the legendary 2010 vintage”, Cantenac Brown produced what few would argue is their very best Margaux to date.
