The attractive white stones reflect the sun’s rays onto the fruit in daytime while at night, they radiate the heat retained during the day.

The quality of the wines is no accident: the predominantly gravelly slope in the village of Cantenac produces some of the best wines in the world and is location of many Crus Classés of Margaux.

The soils, poor and generous at the same time, added to deep rooted vines and the vintners’ know-how lead to fine, elegant and perfectly balanced wines.

The team of Chateau Cantenac Brown is aware of such a gift and looks continuing creating finest quality wines.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc produce subtle wines with an intense bouquet, well-suited for laying down.
Merlot makes up the remainder of the vines and contributes to colour, richness and roundness.
