- Closure: Cork
The 2016 Cantenac Brown comes from a Margaux estate that has upped its game in recent years. It has an intense bouquet with floral aromas filtering through the black cherries, cassis and boysenberry notes, in an odd way almost Saint-Emilion in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. Silky smooth with very well-judged acidity, there is a sorbet-like freshness imbued into this Margaux and it just glides across the palate towards the quite sensual finish. This is certainly equal to the impressive 2015 Cantenac Brown.
Neal Martin eRobertParker.com #230 (Apr 2017)
Focused, with a light brambly frame around the juicy plum and blackberry fruit. Fresh bay and singed juniper notes line the finish. Nicely integrated and showing solid range. Well done.-J.M.
A young red with lovely density and richness defined by currant and light coffee-bean character. Medium to full body and lightly chewy tannins. Lots here in the glass.
Yes, this is firmly tannic and densely structured, but it's also a ripe wine, packed with fruit. The acidity is classic for this vintage, giving the wine excellent aging potential.
The 2016 Cantenac Brown is a powerful, intense wine, but it also comes across as a bit monolithic. There is plenty of depth to the inky red cherry, raspberry jam and spice notes. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Today, the 2016 comes across as very raw and fruit-driven. It will be interesting to see how things develop.
