ABOUT THE WINE
Purchased by the Scottish painter, John Lewis Brown, at the beginning of the 19th Century, who added his name to the estate, and designed the Tudor-style mansion that graces the property today. A series of owners followed, and the estate suffered from a lack of investment, until 1989, when it was acquired by AXA Millésimes. Over the subsequent decade they worked tirelessly to improve the estate, and in 2006 the sold a greatly improved Cantenac-Brown to the Simon-Halabi family. Under this ownership the estate saw its three greatest vintages – 2009, 2010 and 2015 – before being sold once again in 2019.

TASTING NOTES
Dense purple in appearance; the aromas are strikingly powerful, with forest floor, blackberry jam and graphite. The palate is full-bodied, with intense flavours of cassis, deep, structured, yet surprisingly elegant. A wine which will require patience, best from 2020 with a further 20 to 40 years of potential beyond that.

FOOD PAIRING
At present, this wine is still presenting as extremely youthful, and would therefore be best with robust beef or lamb dishes. With further ageing, it will become a perfect pairing for pork and less powerful beef dishes.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Regarded as the finest vintage Cantenac-Brown has ever produced, at least so far.
