Case Size: 12 x 0.75. The bouquet is punctuated with rose and violent floral notes, and enhanced with light notes of spicy vanilla. The palate is flexible, velvety and complex with a dense and tight structure. There are fine tannins without an ounce of astringency in the mouth. From the attack to the finish, the mouthfeel maintains intensity and develops a beautiful complexity marked by the fruit until the very end of the persistent finish. Full of elegance and savouriness.

    THE STORY: John-Lewis Brown (1769-1851) acquired the estate in the early 19th century and decided to build in the village of Cantenac, a Tudor style chateau reminiscent of his Scottish origins. The building is one of the most unusual in Médoc region and is surrounded by a remarkable English-style ground. The quality of the wine was acknowledged in the 1855 classification, when Château Cantenac Brown was included into the growths. The Bordeaux winemerchant and owner of several estates in Médoc, Louis Armande Lalande (1820-1894), extended the building, keeping the same architecture.
