Brio de Cantenac Brown Margaux


Brio de Cantenac Brown Margaux

This, the second wine of Château Cantenac Brown, shows all the elegant hallmarks of its parent. This wine shows ripe fruit with a good depth and a hint of chocolate. Silky tannins and a firm, rich finish.  The vineyard covers 42 hectares (104 acres) and has the gravelly soils, typical of the Médoc area. The attractive white stones reflect the sun’s rays onto the fruit in daytime whilst at night they radiate the heat retained during the day.

Alter Ego de Palmer


Alter Ego de Palmer

Château Palmer is one of a large collection of third growth properties located in Margeaux  and in terms of sheer quality Palmer has for many years led this pack by a length, producing wine of such a high standard that it has frequently wiped the floor with the Margaux second growths. Beautifully perfumed, smoky, with crunchy fruit..  a lovely supple character and a gentleness to the fruit .
