Details

Quite dark in profile, with steeped boysenberry, raspberry and blackberry compote flavors forming a core that is coiled up with bramble, singed mesquite and anise notes. Lots of juicy energy through the finish, with a mouthwatering streak of graphite. Rock-solid. Best from 2023 through 2037. 9,333 cases made. -James Molesworth, Mar 2019

The 2016 Cantenac Brown has an intense bouquet of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, pencil lead and sous-bois. There is gutsiness to these aromatics. The palate is medium bodied with grippy tannin and a rounded texture. A little heavier than the Brane-Cantenac, displaying fine structure and persistency on the finish. Do not ignore this.  Reveiwed by: Neal Martin

As with the 2015, this is closed right now, but is going to blossom into an awesome Margaux. Impressive depth and complexity, with really striking menthol freshness, suggesting that this has decades ahead of it. The slate, rosemary and dark spice markers are clear to see, with bilberry cassis and blackberry notes. Excellent quality, well balanced. Put it away for another five to 10 years, but this is evidence of an estate in the ascendance. 60% new oak, 49% of production in the 1st wine. Harvest September 23 to October 19, with just 14 days picking over these five weeks, showing how leisurely the pace was able to be. Review by: Jane Anson
