Description/ Tasting Notes

Intense bouquet with floral aromas filtering through the black cherries, cassis and boysenberry notes. Medium-bodied with supple tannins, silky smooth and very well-judged acidity and sorbet-like freshness that glides across the palate towards the sensual finish.

Winery Info/ Brand

John-Lewis Brown (1769-1851) acquired the estate in the early 19th century and produced quality wine, which became acknowledged in the 1855 classification, when Château Cantenac Brown was included into the growths. Later the Bordeaux wine merchant and owner of several estates in Médoc, Louis Armande Lalande (1820-1894), extended the building of the existing Tudor style chateau, a reminiscent of Brown's Scottish origin. 

Region Info/ Origin

The Margaux appellation encompasses the village of Margaux and the neighbouring villages of Arsac, Labarde, Soussans and Cantenac. Being the most southerly of the Médoc's appellations, it has the thinnest soil in the region with the highest proportion of gravel that allows the soil to drain very well. The wine from this area are very susceptible to weather effects during the growing season. Encountering all seasons with adequate irrigation, relatively good rainfall and good amount of sunlight, the crop yields a bountiful harvest year-on-year. The winery takes pride and value that captures the essence that reflects their unique brand.
