The wines from Cantenac Brown tend to be concentrated and tannic requiring some time to mellow into their full potential. Take time, drink a few others, this classic rewards patience. “Winey and dark in profile, with steeped currant, plum and blackberry fruit, buttressed by ganache, smoldering tobacco and warm earth notes. Accents of bay leaf, alder and mineral are in reserve. Delivers a beguiling feel despite the concentration. A very strong showing.” - WS
A great value classically styled Bordeaux at under $75 and 97 points. Put six away for a rainy day.
Ripe black fruits shine through this balanced wine, showing strongly against a backdrop of rich, generous tannins. This estate is one to watch as it achieves the form the vineyard deserves. Expect this wine to be ready to drink from 2026.
