2000 Château Cantenac-Brown Margaux, Bordeaux, France

Splendid bouquet that matured beautifully with raspberry preserve, wild strawberry, dark chocolate and hints of rose petal, a touch of licorice developing with aeration. The palate shows red fruit, pretty texture, and a smooth finish. Drinking window is estimated to be now until 2032



Château Cantenac-Brown is a Third Classified Growth of Margaux.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

The soul of a great terroir, a radiant, full-bodied, velvety wine for keeping. It stands out by its fresh fruit flavors, its density and its very fine tannins. Its best vintages express freshness, an elegant bouquet of red and black fruits, with opulence and tension on the finish, and spicy undertones.


The vineyard was founded over 200 years ago by a Scotsman, John Lewis Brown. This visionary figure selected the best parcels of land: his hard work and high standards were rewarded in 1855 when the Bordeaux Classification ranked Cantenac Brown among the most esteemed wineyards. The estate produces three wines. Today the Château is managed by the French family Le Lous. One process, 3 wines. Cantenac Brown offers Margaux a style marked by the Cabernet Sauvignons of its exceptional terroirs, spread over the prestigious Margaux and Cantenac plateaus, which instill its wines with depth and a very strong ageing potential.
