  • The wine features a rich and generous core, boasting flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry, and redcurrant fruit, which are beautifully complemented by savoury roasted notes. Its opulence and richness are enhanced by fine-grained tannins that delicately coat the palate and lead to an endless, lingering finish. This is a truly classic Margaux that showcases the finest characteristics of the region.

The grapes were harvested by hand, manually sorted and destemmed before a secondary screening on vibrating tables with an optical sorter; only the highest quality fruit was vinified. Each plot was vinified separately according to variety and age, allowing for greater precision at blending. Fermentation lasted 10 days, followed by malolactic conversion in oak barrels and vats. The wine was aged in French oak barrels, of which 60% were new and 40% one year old, for 16 months. Racking occurred every three months, and the wine was fined by egg white before being bottled.

A generous core of blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry, and red-berried fruit is enveloped in savoury roasted aromas. Opulent and rich, this wine with fine-grained tannins delicately coats the palate to the endless finish. It's Classic Margaux.

Winery

The vineyard is managed in an environmentally friendly manner, and Cantenac Brown holds the Haute Valeur Environmental certificate (HVE) level 3, which is the highest level. Only plant-based fertilisers are applied using a moderate and balanced approach in tune with the vines' needs. The double Guyot-trained vines are meticulously cultivated throughout the year, with pruning, removal of buds, leaves and secondary shoots, thinning out and controlled yields. The Cantenac Brown team uses traditional soil maintenance techniques to enhance the soil's structural, chemical and biological properties. The Margaux soil is predominantly gravelly soil, with clay and sand.
