Cantenac Brown: Appellation d'origine contrôlée and Third Growth of Margaux

The wines of Château Cantenac Brown

The magnificent and imposing Chateau Cantenac Brown owes its style to the English Renaissance (the Tudor style) as well as its name to John Lewis Brown, who purchased it in the nineteenth century. Bought in 2006 by Axa Millésime, Chateau Cantenac Brown became the property of the British businessman Simon Halabi. Château Cantenac Brown is a Troisième Grand Cru Classé (Third Growth) of Margaux (thus, on the left bank) in the Bordeaux classification of 1855. The vines are planted over 48 hectares on the graves of the Cantenac plateau at a density of 8.500 to 10.000 vines per hectare and are treated with lutte raisonnée (meaning with a reasonable use of chemicals). The varietals that comprise the blend are 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The Château Cantenac Brown produces three Bordeaux red wines. The first is the "Grand Vin de Cantenac Brown", which has progressed in quality since 2006 so much so as to become one of the references of Margaux. It is refined and has become deeper and more structured all the while conserving the delicate and distinguished nature of wines from Margaux. The second wine, "Brio de Cantenac Brown", was born of a plot selection of the Château Cantenac Brown and represents a compromise of concentration and finesse, a shorter aging process (12 months) and less new wood (20%). Their third wine, Brane Lamartine, is produced from a small plot of 3.5 hectares in the Bordeaux Superieur appellation. Recently the Château Cantenac Brown decided to make a Bordeaux white under the Bordeaux appellation called "Alto de Cantenac Brown '' made from 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon planted on a 1.80 hectare plot of clay-limestone. It is similar in spirit to an excellent Sancerre of the Loire valley. The Château Cantenac Brown has succeeded in renewing itself as the "Grand Vin de Cantenac Brown" can age from 10 to 20 year, whereas the second is slightly limited to 5 to 10 years.
