A fine follow-up to the excellent 2019, the 2020 Cantenac Brown incorporates newly acquired holdings of Cabernet Sauvignon from the plateau of Margaux. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of cherries, cassis, burning embers and pencil shavings, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with good depth at the core, supple tannins and terrific purity of fruit. Concluding with a long, penetrating finish, it underlines the fact that this is the appellation's fastest-improving estate.
A property in the midst of a notable renaissance, this 60-hectare estate boasts some prime terroirs on the plateau of Margaux. It is in the midst of constructing a new, state-of-the-art winery under the auspices of technical director José Sanfins. In recent years, Cantenac Brown has regularly numbered among the sleepers of the vintage for classically styled Margaux.
