The 2017 Château Cantenac Brown is an utterly magnificent wine in this vintage. José Sanfins has crafted this stunning wine from 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. It opens to stunning aromatics of currants and cassis that are joined by tobacco, graphite, herbs and spring flowers. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully polished, with remarkable overall balance and focus. This is an absolute standout that is already showing beautifully, but should become even more compelling over time. It should not be missed.
