2014 Margaux from Bordeaux
The 2014 harvests were highly expected by the team of the Chateau Cantenac Brown. For four weeks, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were harvested when they were perfectly ripe. This 2014 Cantenac-Brown is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. This purple-tinted dark red wine sincerely and deliciously expresses a large aromatic palette of fleshy black fruit, on a good freshness. The palate is also fleshy, strong and has an ample and round structure on tannins with very elegant grains. The finish is long and fruity. It is a refined Margaux Troisième Cru Classé with a real ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Cantenac Brown 2014 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. It has a feisty nose compared to its mild-mannered Margaux neighbors: perfumed dark cherries dallying with incense and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate depth of fruit, a little grippy with some lovely tarry notes developing towards the finish that has more substance than intimated by the aromatics. It needs to flesh out during élevage, but presuming it does, this could be a spicy Margaux that will give 15 to 20 years of pleasure.
