The history of Château Cantenac Brown dates back to the early nineteenth century when John Lewis Brown, a Scottish-born animal painter, bought the vineyard. He thought about a castle of the English Renaissance style (Tudor) and orders its construction. Lover of good wines and big parties, he organizes his famous luxury parties. He sold it in 1843 to a banker named Gromard. The latter is at the head of the estate in 1855, when the property is classified Third Grand Cru. 150 years later, the Simon Halabi family gives a new impetus to the property with the ambition to raise it to the highest level.
The area of ??the terroir is 42 hectares on a soil of serious, typical Médoc. The grape variety is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot. The average age of the vines is 35 years old. The management of the vineyard has become more respectful of the environment: the sustainable viticulture is obvious for the domain. The vine is handled with care throughout the year and yields are perfectly controlled. The fertilizations are balanced and moderate according to the needs of the plant and only of vegetable origin.
At the tasting, Château Cantenac Brown offers a balanced aromatic richness and a great refinement, in the pure style of Margaux wines.
