Cantenac Brown possesses a vineyard of 42 hectares in the heart of the Margaux appellation, principally in the commune of Cantenac in the South of the appellation.
The Margaux appellation terroirs are terraced groups of gravel, ensuring good drainage. The Cantenac Brown soil is typical Médoc gravel. This beautiful, brilliant quartz, formerly called the ‘Médoc Diamonds' reflects the sun's rays on the grapes by day and then releases the heat stored during the day to warm the grapes by night.
Cabernets in particular do well in this soil, they produce fine wines with intense bouquet, which are suitable for ageing. Merlot with which they are blended provides the colour, richness and smoothness.
65% Cabernet Sauvignon ; 5% Cabernet Franc ; 35% Merlot
