At the beginning of the 19th century, John-Lewis Brown bought a vineyard and designed in the village of Cantenac, a traditional Tudor style château, reminding him of his Scottish origins. His name is forever linked to the Grand Cru Classé. His grandson, John-Lewis Brown esteemed animal painter and “Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur”, spent time there during his childhood. In 1843, Mr. Gromard, banker, took over the estate.
After the 1855 Grand Cru Classification, Louis Armand Lalande, Bordeaux winemerchant and owner of several estates in Médoc, extended the building. Surrounded by a remarkable British-style park, Château Cantenac Brown is since then among the most original in Médoc.
Grapes Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, Cabernet Franc 3%
Deep garnet-purple in color and a little coy to begin and then, with coaxing, opens out to lovely red roses, black tea, violets and underbrush scents with a core of warm red and black currants and chocolate-covered cherries.
Full-bodied and laden with perfumed red and black fruit layers, it has a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and a long, fragrant finish.
