Château Cantenac Brown is a Grand Cru ranked third in the 1855 Classification, located within the Margaux appellation. The chateau was founded over 200 years ago by a Scotsman, John Lewis Brown. This visionary figure selected the best parcels of land: his hard work and high standards were rewarded in 1855 when the Bordeaux Classification ranked Cantenac Brown among the most esteemed. A spectacular testimony to its Scottish ancestry, the estate’s emblematic Tudor-style château makes it the most remarkable property in the Médoc region.
Today, the Château is managed by the French Le Lous family. Tristan Le Lous, an agronomic engineer with a passion for oenology, together with José Sanfins (GM and winemaker), who is inextricably linked with the estate’s modern history.
The 63 hectares of vineyard lie across Margaux and Cantenac plateaus. Composed of 65% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the diversity of terroirs offers a great richness to the blending process.
This 2016 Brio de Cantenac Brown is beautifully balanced with great freshness and exceptional richness. 49% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc.
