Château Cantenac Brown 2021 - primeur
Château Cantenac Brown is a Grand Cru ranked third in the 1855 Classification, located within the Margaux appellation. The chateau was founded over 200 years ago by a Scotsman, John Lewis Brown.
This visionary figure selected the best parcels of land: his hard work and high standards were rewarded in 1855 when the Bordeaux Classification ranked Cantenac Brown among the most esteemed.
A spectacular testimony to its Scottish ancestry, the estate’s emblematic Tudor-style château makes it the most remarkable property in the Médoc region.
Today, the Château is managed by the French Le Lous family. Tristan Le Lous, an agronomic engineer with a passion for oenology, together with José Sanfins (GM and winemaker), who is inextricably linked with the estate’s modern history.

An amazing project will take shape for the 2023 harvest: the construction of a new eco-friendly cellar, entirely built in raw earth and wood. Designed by Philippe Madec, this project is based on the rammed earth process and raised up by what our century can offer us, while guaranteeing thermal inertia and the perfect humidity for maturation thanks to the power of the earth.
