Chateau Cantenac-Brown, located in the Haut-Medoc appellation and has 42 hectares of vineyards - 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Under the direction of José Sanfins, the estate has begun promoting physical, chemical and biological practices that are environmentally friendly. The harvest in done by hand and then fermentation lasts about ten days with wines being aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 15 months. The red brick Chateau is reminiscent of an English prep school and looks somewhat out of place in Margaux. The recent vintages are without question impressive, but they have maybe lost their sense of place.
