Tasting Notes of Château Cantenac Brown 2012
"The 2012 Cantenac Brown, one of the most impressive Margaux I tasted, is the complete package – from the initial attack to the layered, rich finish. Dense ruby/purple-hued with notes of licorice, mulberries, black currants, asphalt and spring flowers, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, rich effort does not reveal an excess of rusticity or astringency. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
This under-the-radar chateau never receives much attention even though it is the beneficiary of a new, conscientious proprietor." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/24/2013, Issue 206), Ratings: 90-93, Drink: 2013-2028
