A new wine for the new century: BriO de Cantenac Brown was born in 2001.
Through the style of its label, but also through the quality of our work from the selection of the lots to the bottling, this wine aims to express the modernity of our Château.
The lots destined to make up the most of BriO are preselected base on their evolution throughout the year. This means that we focus on each different lot of the winery, from the budburst through the flowering, to the ripeness control.
Notes and Reviews
Antonio Galloni (89)
The 2015 BriO de Cantenac Brown shows just how rich the second wines of Margaux are in this vintage. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, violet, menthol and spice give the 2015 much of its succulent, inviting personality. The ripeness and richness of the vintage are very much front and centre.
