This estate is finally getting the tannin under control, as previous vintages have always been a bit rustic and astringent. The 2001 offers chocolate, espresso, and sweet black currant fruit characteristics in a medium to full-bodied, charming, structured, well-textured, seductive format. Enjoy it over the next decade. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 153



Smells like freshly cut flowers, with earth and berry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing aftertaste. Compacted and refined. This estate continues to improve. Best after 2008. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2004

Established at the beginning of the 19th century, Cantenac-Brown is today one of the finest Châteaux in Bordeaux. The estate includes 42 hectares of vineyard with typical Médoc gravel and is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Approximately 15,000 cases are produced per year for the Grand Vin, plus 5,000 of a second label: Château Canuet. Vintages from 2002 on have been increasingly impressive, leading Neal Martin to declare it 'an estate that I have my eye on”
