Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Dark, this garnet-colored wine releases rich fragrances recalling the spices and the prune. Round and greedy, the attack leaves space for smooth and long tannins as well as nutmeg notes. Tasteful, the finish reveals the great personality of this wine that has a taste of black fruits and spices. This wine can age for two or three years in a cellar.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Cantenac-Brown

    The story of the Château Cantenac-Brown begins at the beginning of the 19th century when John-Lewis Brown purchased the domain. He decided to build a castle style Tudor that reminded him its Scottish origins.

     

    • Viticulture: The grapes are harvested manually. First, they are sorted directly on the bunch. They are subjected to a second manual selection on vibrating tables or by optical sorting.
       
    • Wine-making: The plots are vinified separately by variety and by age to allow a precise selection during the assembly of the Château Cantenac Brown. The alcoholic fermentation lasts for about 10 days while grapes are put in thermos-regulated stainless steel tanks. Follow malolactic fermentations made in barrels and tanks. The wine ages then in French oak barrels whose wood bring finesse to the wine’s tannins. This wood comes from forests of the center of France. This step lasts for 12 to 15 months. 60% of the barrels used are new, the rest is one year old.
