Chateau Cantenac Brown Brio de Cantenac Brown 2014

Brio de Cantenac Brown is the second wine of Chateau Cantenac Brown, a 3rd Cru Classé Margaux. Brio can be one of the best value Bordeaux wines when it comes from a good or great vintage. Made from a blend of three of the classic red Bordeaux grapes which combine together to produce a medium bodied red wine of immense elegance, freshness and class. This delightful Margaux is superb when served with rich Duck, poultry dishes and grilled red meats.

Cantenac Brown's vineyard of 42 hectares is in the heart of the Margaux appellation, principally in the commune of Cantenac in the South of the appellation. The Margaux appellation terroirs are terraced groups of gravel, ensuring good drainage. The Cantenac Brown soil is typical Medoc gravel. Cabernets in particular do well in this soil, they produce fine wines with intense bouquet, which are suitable for ageing. Jose Sanfins, the technical director and Herve Martin, his vineyard manager, have installed a vineyard management system known as La Lutte Raisonne which aims to limit chemical treatments and use natural products as much as possible.

Vinification
Traditional vinification under controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. Maceration during 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in barrels and in vats. Ageing in French oak barrels during 12 months (25% new barels, 75% one year barrels)

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
