Located in the heart of the Margaux appellation, Château Cantenac Brown is a magnificent Tudor-style estate unique in the Médoc. It was founded by Scottish businessman John Lewis Brown who purchased Domaine in 1803 and gave it this architectural inspiration.
The Château Cantenac Brown would be classified as the Third Grand Cru Classé in 1855 when it was officially classified for the Paris World's Fair.
Owned by the Le Lous Family since 2019, the vineyard, located on magnificent gravel soils conducive to making great wines, is planted on 60 hectares to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which are new. A Second wine is produced, Brio de Cantenac Brown.
Since 2011, Château has 1.80 ha planted to 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon, giving birth to their white wine Alto de Cantenac Brown.
Very committed to the environment, a new winery made entirely of raw earth and eco-responsible is under construction for the property. It will be delivered for the 2023 harvest.
The wines of Château Cantenac deliver a perfect representation of the best Margaux, they are opulent, fine and deliciously complex.
