CHATEAU CANTENAC BROWN

Farmed sustainably since 1996 and sited in Margaux, this Troisièmes Cru (Third Growth) estate occupies a terroir of gravel and sand. Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 65% of the 48 hectares under vine, with the remainder 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

With a somewhat chequered career in its past, Cantenac Brown is, these days, one of the rising stars of the appellation, producing a silky, feminine claret that epitomises Margaux. The château building itself is somewhat unique in the Bordeaux hood, designed at the start of the 19th Century as a traditional Tudor estate by then owner, the Scottish animal painter, John Lewis Brown.

JERVOIS ROAD WINE CLUB | THE LITTLE BROTHERS OF BORDEAUX

Home to many of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the world, Bordeaux can also at times be synonymous with some of the most eye watering prices in wine. For most wine lovers the likes of Petrus or Lafite are aspirational - bucket list bottles certainly, but likely not ones we are filling our cellars with. Fortunately a lot of the great chateau also produce seconds wine at far more affordable prices. Whether they are from younger vines or fruit that didn't quite make the cut for the grand vin, these wine are still usually of a very high quality and offer an insight into the differing styles of chateaux. Join us in the Jervois Road cellar as we take an in depth look at some of the finest examples of these, sampled from across Bordeaux and from some of the region's most renowned estates.
