The 2014 Cantenac Brown is very pretty. A model of total understatement, the 2014 stands out for its terrific overall balance. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet red stone fruit, iron, tobacco and cedar are woven into the silky, exquisitely layered finish. Tasted twice.

The Château Cantenac Brown 2014 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. It has a feisty nose compared to its mild-mannered Margaux neighbors: perfumed dark cherries dallying with incense and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate depth of fruit, a little grippy with some lovely tarry notes developing towards the finish that has more substance than intimated by the aromatics. It needs to flesh out during élevage, but presuming it does, this could be a spicy Margaux that will give 15 to 20 years of pleasure. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

A silky red with fine tannins and a beautiful core of ripe fruit. Medium to full body, fine tannins. Polished already.

Very refined, featuring alluring currant and blackberry fruit that glides along the supple structure, with iron and light espresso hints filling in on the finish.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.

A slightly medicinal edge here. Some poise and lift. Taut. Lifted. Decent. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.

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”
